You sure that the front and rear gear ratio is the same? If you bought it used - you never know what the PO has done and neglected to tell you. I read a post earlier today about a guy that was going to try 4.88:1 in the rear to see if he likes it. If he doesn't, he's going to sell it and buy a different jeep. Now, do you think he's going to put back the 4.11:1 in the rear or go ahead and put the 4.88:1 in the front if he sells it? I dunno!!!!!
