4.56 Gears and 37" ???

PO installed 4.56 gears and was running 37". I have dropped the tires down to 35" now.

Thoughts? I don't know much about gearing and tire size yet.


Great resources I put here so I can find 'em when I need 'em.

You'll be fine with 4.56,5 speed and 35's. 4.88's are optimal,but I wouldn't waste the $1200 for another regear.I'd be more concerned with a d35 that had been driven with 37's.

In fact, the rear axle shafts have had trouble. The driver side was replaced by PO as a condition of sale. The passenger side is i need of repair now, its a bit wobbly. Probably bent, and bearings worn. Thoughts? I really don't want to spend a bunch of money on a swap. This Jeep is mostly my daily driver, but I like it to be off road capable. I take it mild trailing occasionally.

Great resources I put here so I can find 'em when I need 'em.

4.88's are what's needed to get the rpms back to stock.If he had a 32rh auto,4.56's would be best for 35's.

If you don't like your 3.73's then 4.56 would be fine on the street.
