I didn't take into consideration that you might live somewhere with flat roads or that you had an auto. That definitely changes things.

Where I live, it's not very flat at all, and I have 3.07's with a 5-speed. It's awful. I almost never get into 5th gear... but I did notice that when I drive to the beach and the land starts to flatten out, it's not nearly as bad driving at highway speeds and I can sometimes get into 5th gear.

i have 33s with 3.73, a 6 cylinder and 4 speed auto. if it were me i would drop to 4.56 but 4.10 would probably be fine for street. i plan for 35 or 37 so mine will be getting much lower. good luck with your build

The water crossing was deeper than I thought.

I've decided I like the way the older TJ's window seals And visors work. The excess plastic on my '03 seems excessive compared to my wife's '00. If anyone's got visors or seals from a trashed windshield, let me know.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
