Different transmission on the 2012+ so the gearing is different. 5.38 still feels sluggish, especially now that I'm using 4th gear instead of overdrive. Someone else mention that streetability didn't improve much with regearing, just driving on freeway/hills and offroading and I agree. I still feel like I have to wring the piss out of the engine to get moving sometimes.
Trauma, Thanks for the info. Still tossing around in the peanut what I'm going to do. I want to try to do it right the first time because in the past I have done things 2 or 3 times over until I got it right. I have regeared some of the vehicles myself but this time I'm having a shop do it so that much more I want to get it right if I'm ******* out that kind of money. Back to the drawing board...
