Hello, I made some search but I am a little confused.
I bought a '02 TJ with 4 cylinders, 5 speed manual, it has 4.11 axles (D30 and D35), 31" tires and 3in lift. As you imagine the Jeep look not so nice with much space between the tire and the flare, so I'm planning to change those 31" for a 33" tires but I do not want to loose driveability (power and accel) considering that it's going to be my daily drive Jeep...
So, I am planning to upgrade the gear ratio to 4.56 or 4.88 but I still have doubts:
1. Whats better?.... 4.56 or 4.88?
2. Do I need to change carriers if I'm going to upgrade to any of these two options?
Use the gear calculator link in my sig to figure out where you want to be. Others will offer info on the hardware.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]
