  1. General Discussion
    Hey everyone, new here and recently bought a '21 JLU Sahara High Altitude (3.45 gears and 2.0T 8 speed auto trans). I'm trying to decide between K02 33's and a spacer lift vs 35's and suspension lift. This will be mainly road driving and the offroad stuff (as I'm planning now but that may...
  2. General Jeep & Off-Road Equipment
    I just put 37" (actual 35.5") on 2005 6MT 4.0 TJ and have been learning about re-gearing requirements and little confused about the recommendations online. First, to get few details out of way: 1) this car is never going to leave paved city road, never off-roading, almost never highways, etc...

  4. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    hi everyone, I have a few questions about axles and gears. I'm looking to get a 4" lift with 35" tires by the end of spring. right now I have 2.5" lift with 32" tires now. I've been talking to some of my buddies who have wranglers and Cherokees and they tell me I should get new axles if I am...
  5. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I currently run a Jeep JKU with a 3.8L (minivan power) automatic and i have a 3 inch rough country and 35s. I get about 10 miles to the gallon. :( I was wondering if i should plan on regearing and if that would help my mpg go up? Im also not looking to spend a lot due to other Mods i would...

    Hi all.I'm a newbie dealing with axle and gearing issues to push my 38`s.What can I get from junkyard to have stronger axles with decent gearing.Make and model year trucks.
  8. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I had my jeep in the shop to have the seal on the left side replaced. Got a call from them later on saying I should start looking around for a new axle. Told me the gears looked pretty rough and they found chunks of metal inside. and it would be pretty expensive to have it rebuilt. Seems...
  9. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Alright, I've been looking around about regearing from the stock tj gears (3.07's?) to something that gets better mpgs for 33's. My two questions are: 1. Is regearing worth it in the made up mpg? I've read that a regear is a must and that it also isn't that important. And 2. What gear ratio is...
  10. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So, to get to the point, when I switch into four high, both axles engage but after a few feet, it binds up as if I'm pulling the E-brake. Also, when in 4 low, there is no drive at all. Neutral. :mad::mad:Are my gears different in both axles? And what could be the problem with 4 low not working...
  11. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    How much lift does a TJ Wrangler have to have to run 35 inch tires? Also do you have to put a longer drive shaft in? Will stock gearing pull 35's..?
  12. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I currently have a 2.5L YJ with 32" tires. It's a 91 with stock everything. I'm looking to do a Chevy 350 swap because I have a donor (bread) truck. I want to go with a Ford 8.8 rear but the gearing has me on edge. If I'm going to spend the money on parts, I want to do it right. I want to get...
  13. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Ok I have read a couple of these threads but I am seeing conflicting information. I have a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 6 spd manual on 35's and it is in need of regearing. Its not a daily driver but I drive it to spots to wheel as far as 9 hours away so highway manners are at least somewhat...
  14. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I am currently running 4.10s with 35s. I have a 4.0 with a good intake, header and a free flowing exhaust. Also have a 5 speed trans. I have been looking around at other forums and seeing that most people are saying that 4.88 is a good ratio for 35s, even using it on the freeway. with my current...
  15. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    whats the biggest recomended tire for 2.5L with 4.11's? how would it handle 33s as a DD? what about with wheeling? would 5th gear become useless? :confused:
  16. Jeep CJ Forum
    So I just picked up a Dana 30 and AMC 20 with 4.10s. The front has a Detroit Truetrac and the rear has the OEM style Trac-lok. I am doing a skyjacker 4 inch suspension lift, with hydro shocks, but I was curious as to what size tires you guys thought I should be running with that gearing. This is...
  17. Jeep CJ Forum
    My '82 CJ7 came to me with 31x10.50's and 3.31 gearing with the 258 and T-5. It runs great with this gear and tire combo, but I'd like to get bigger tires. Shes also mainly a street queen with a little trail mixed in, swaybar connected. I LOVE the 10.50 width in the snow and would lean toward...
  18. Jeep CJ Forum
    I have a T-150 tranny (Dana 20 dif) and a 2.73 axle ratio.......... awesome on the highway, but sucks in town or on the trail. I have checked out the Novak site and used their fancy calculators and I think that 3.73 gears would give me an acceptable loss at highway speeds, but I don't know how...
  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    ive heard that running 35s on a D35 is a "ticking time bomb" - is that true even if its geared properly? whats first to go if it is true and about how long would it take? :confused:
