Tomorrow, (hopefully) buying 3.73's for my WK. Will update asap.
Thanks. Def. keep us up to date on the gear swap. We're both in the same boat. I'll be watching you closely.

Sweeeet man. Rubi wheels look good on these WK's

AJ, I'm going to install them myself. I got the rear ring and pinion and for the front I got the entire front diff assembly with the gears already installed. Now I just need to go check with the dealer and see if the star scan will allow them.
Also when I install them, I would like to put in a rear locker and a better rear diff cover. We'll see.

And if the Star Scan won't allow it, then what? Were the 3.73's an option on any WK? I thought the tow package was 3.55.



Edit: I see that 3.73 was the tow option, but only w/ the V8? Don't know why I was thinking 3.55.Either way I would think it would accept it since it was an option.

You are correct about the 3.55 gears with the tow package on a V6. Again, you should be correct that the computer should accept the 3.73 since it was an option on the WK's. What I want the dealer to tell me is if the V6 computer will accept the 3.73's since it was not an option on the V6's. If so, then bamalama, installed mother sucker!!!

It is late and yes I ahve been drinkning
