I'm pretty well confused at this point. The chart shows that 4.56 would be at the beginning of the "performance" column. I wish I could test drive one with the same tires and different gears just to feel the difference. Also, I ordered a set of iggee seat covers for the front. Cant wait to get them. And I'm considering taking the carpet out, although I don't have the time or money to rhinoline right now.
6spd 07-11': 4.56's are great for the 33's, 4.88's for 35's. 5.13's for 35's but planning on 37's...

Great looking rig, love the Blackrocks. Similar rim was my first choice for my rig, they look great.

Yea they brought it down.. I don't check it often though so I can't really give you a number. I started with the smallest tires they put on them. I'll try to check my mileage next time I refuel.

Thanks for the input. Thats the way I was leaning per the chart. Need to work some overtime!!! I really like the looks of the black rocks. At some point I may upgrade to something not steel though.

Got my iggee seat covers for the front in over the weekend. Was nice today so decided to put them in. They look pretty good, although I'm hoping they tighten up as time goes by. Also thought about removing my carpet, but decided I didn't want to mess with it just yet.

They were sort of a pain to put in, especially since the drivers seat doesn't flip forward.

The covers won't tighten up. I had mine on my 07 (loved them). The best you can do, is try to stretch the tie downs further under the seats.

I will probably try to adjust the drivers seat a bit. I'm ready to get the rear one in as well now lol..

Got my Raincover trail cover for my jeep today. Pretty happy with it. Fits well, although rain may puddle on the top.

You can make an arch out of some PVC pipe with "T"s on the bottom ends to stand on the soundbar to keep the center of the cover higher so that the water won't puddle...

I thought about doing that, but I'm gonna wait and see how bad it is. I may also be able to tweak the cover so it will let water run off. I just threw it on before work to make sure it fit well.

Thanks! Its slowly gettin where I want it to be. Buying the parts to regear tomorrow. Then just to save up a little more for the labor. Can't wait to see how it feels with 4.56.

Been checking mileage lately, which comes out to about 19.4 on average with the 33s and (crappy) 3.21 gearing. JKS quicker discos are on order from Kolak on this forum, who gave me a great deal! Installed the new Truck-lite LED headlights last night, and am happy with them. Will post pictures as soon as I take some. My build is moving along slowly... Next up is gearing, which I'm looking forward to providing some input, since not many use the 4.56 gearing it seems.
