At least you only lost overdrive. I only have 1st and 2nd left in mine. It is fine for what I do but would be nice to get on the highway every once in a while.

The jeep actually feels kind of sporty from a dead stop. Don't get me wrong its no sports car, but it runs so much better than it did.
How long did you run them for before the 5.13 upgrade?

I average about 13. That is all short trips though. Haven't took a long trip to see what it would get on the highway. I was averaging about 11.5 before the swap. I could probably get a little better, but its hard to keep my foot out of it. It runs so much better now. By far my best upgrade that I have done

Nice. I'll be doing 35s then gears.
