Thumbs up Gearing help??


Im getting ready to regear and im having trouble deciding between 4.56 and 4.88's.
I have a 2000 tj with a i-6, nv3550, np231(i think) and 35"tires. It'll be offroad every weekend(mostly mud) and driven on the highway 6 days a week (75mph).

from your experience, what would you recommend and why?

Thanks for any help,

If you are going to do it. Just go ahead with the 4.88's. There is not enough of a difference between 4.56 and 4.88 to notice. Especially with you having a manual.

im tempted to say 4.88...but you like mud where wheelspeed is important...

there isn't a huge difference though, like Jack said.

I have 35's and 4.56's. daily driver. Does okay, 4.88's would be okay too. No major hills on my drive, for the most part I put it in 5th and it stays there.
