HI from Northern NJ

Hello everyone,

My name's Sean and live in Northern NJ. Looking to replace my WRX shortly with a Sport Unlimited. Used to have a 89 YJ Islander. Those were fun times of my life.

Ill be lurking and asking questions here and there if I cant find it using the search.

One noob question. With my search for a JKU Sport Im only finding 3.21 rears. I'm sure its all fine and dandy an the road with the stock wheel/tire combo but my intentions of the JKU would really only be a 2.5 lift and slightly larger rim/tires. Its been a while for me with tire sizes Im used to 205/55/16s for my WRX.

Would the 3.21 be adequate for the slightly larger tires? I dont see myslef going larger than 35.

welcome Sean!

Lots of gears discussions in the JK section here if you do a search. Here is a recent thread I found that might help, but there are tons more:

Just was at the dealership last night. Didn't have what i wanted on the lot, limited slip rear and 3.73 gears but was able to locate a JKU sport in silver and offered a decent price 30.4k not including taxes and fees. Now just need them to give me a good offer for my WRX.
