Here's my build thread check it out and comment!! lots of pictures of my old rig, my 2nd girlfriend (the bike) and my current stock WJ.

I'm Will btw, I go to UVU as a freshman, and I'm dying to get wheeling again! I also plan on attending some wheeling sessions with you guys once I get my dub up in the air, and I'm gonna get some stickers to rep!

The bronco was cool, but you will enjoy how comfy the dub feels on the trails...especially with long arms.

Yeah im looking forward to it! Hopefully a much smoother ride, plus having solid axles and varilock. Im just concerned it will look small on 33s but im not willing to go to 35s on stock gears

I ran 35's with 3.73's for a few years before I geared. It wasn't too bad with the v8.

Yeah, about the only real down fall was not having the speedo corrected - which would have helped with shift points, among other things.

Yeah, I imagine it would be livable, I think when my 33's wear out, I will maybe do gears, and truss the 30 and run 35's... I was looking at getting 4.23 gears I saw, not sure if they make them for the dana 44a, or the different splined dana 30, but I think that would be about the perfect ratio for 35's

4.56's IMO. The revs aren't too high for highway driving, and it gives you the power back on the road. I don't think anything is made for the 44HD between the 4.10 and 4.56 ratios.

What are your rpms at highway speeds (65-70), and what transmission do you have?

I want 35's, but it's gonna have to wait at least a year or so probably.. plus I got a set of 4 pro comp mt's for $650, not bad for 33 mud terrains!
I got a speeding ticket in a construction zone the other day though... between that and traffic school that sets me back $300 on my plans, not a big deal, but it might put me 2 weeks back depending on the size of my tax return!

545 trans. I think the rpm's are still below 2k at that 70, I will have to check.

It's a little above 2k. At stock tires/gear ratio, it would be right at 2k @ 70

so 4.56 is probably the perfect ratio, I will definately be moving up to those gears when I do 35's! My 33's should be here friday, and my tax return should be here within a couple weeks after that, then I'll order my lift! I have enough right now, but I want a lot of extra in the bank

I would stick with stock gears with the 33's, move to 4.56 with 35's.

On my way into SL this morning...Using the stock tach, and my phones GPS...

65 MPH = just under 2000 RPM
70 MPH = right at 2100 RPM

I ran 33's on 3.73 it was okay. Not great, but okay. I geared to 4.56 on 33's and loved it. I think in the WJ's 4.56 is a must for 33's and up. But like Will said, if your just going to 33's now. Go ahead and get them and then upgrade the gears later.
