Alot of the guys here over exaggerate how bad they think stock gears are. I live in the mountains of NC and I can run it at 65 on the highway and keep it in 5th gear all day long. Its not a corvette, but it still has plenty of power and torque. It is definitely livable, and I don't plan to regear unless I step up to 35s down the road. Don't listen to everything you read about on here, sometimes just try it and find out for yourself. I would recommend you throw a set of 33s on it if you have 3.73s.

It's a Jeep thing... You wouldn't understand!

Funny thing - people that say their stock gears work with 33s or 35s are losing OD, and once they regear they all say "WOW!" in amazement of how much power they'd lost.

Either way, don't forget to change out the speedo gear. Also if you have a 1997, you don't have a 4-speed auto...you have a 32RH 3-speed auto.

I've done that since I first joined JF years ago.I love to test people's opinions and treat my Jeep like an episode of "Myth Busters".
