I am re gearing my tj with the 3spd auto for 35's. I also tow a boat that weighs about 1500lbs. I guess the question I have Is what gears do I need, and what mileage increase will I get from the gear change?
My current setup is 3.73's with a 5.5" lift and 33's. Currently I get 12mpg and it really dislikes pulling the boat. The jeep has absolutly no balls when pulling and a over all sluggish feling.
I was thinking of going with 4.88's but I dont know if that will be over kill with the 3 spd. I will be running the 33's untill I get my tax return in febuary and buy a new set of tires. Also I want gears that will be DD friendly and not eat my gas as i have to drive to work everyday.

JEEP. . . It's big, It's slow, It's clumsy, it sucks on asphalt, and I love it.
