Generally if it has the factory hitch installed it will have 3.73 gears.

If all else fails, you can jack up the back and spin the tire and count number of spins the drive shaft does to make one complete tire rotation. Taht also can tell you what your Gear ratio is... A little more of a PITA but not too bad if you have a decent jack.

Does anyone run 5.13s on 33-inch tires? How is it on the highway?

Good luck

Hey Everyone!

So Ive decided on a NEW JK Manual not sure which model yet BUT Ive decided I want 35"s on this bad boy.

Which kit is best to use to lift? I want to lift at the minimum possble and be worried free
Also will 3.73 gears be ok for 35"s?


Thanks
G

Hey Giano, I'd start a new thread and tell us a little bit about what kind of wheeling you do. I'd also check outy the gear ratio chart that been linked several times on the forums....it'll answer the gearing question....and you telling us about what kind of wheeling you do will help us recommend a lift for you.

I have 3.21 gears and 33 inch tires with an auto. I would like to tell you it isn't bad, but trust me, you will need new gearing.

LV Capo -

I saw that and saved the Chart but i was confused. If higher gears help you crawl better then why do you need higher gears with bigger tires for 75MPH? Does the chart refer to highway miles?

I wont do off roading but I will be using this wrangler with daily use and occasionally a trip to VT, Boston, Metlife Stadium. I live in Connecticut and the farthest drive for me would be about 3 hours max. I just want to make sure i dont lift this wrangler and put huge tires on it and then I can travel more than 50mph on the highway because the car wont move.

Does this make sense? - you can reply here or i did start a new thread http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/h...05/?highlight=

Hey Giano, you did start a new thread but in the wrong forum (ask the mods to move it to the right forum). Fill out your Jeep profile so we know what we are working with.

I have 5.13 with my 35's (33's..) And I really like them. Night and day difference, especially on the highway. Still have to get on it sometimes, but atleast this time it goes lol

Thanks this is the answer I was looking for. Now I'm thinking just to find a used 2011 Rubi and go from there. Only thing that has 4.10 gears, will that be ok?
