Regearing

So I know the benefits of rehearing. Especially running bugger tires and what not. But could use some explanation. Like do I want to go up or down in gear ratio to compensate for tires. And What happens when you do go either way. Thanks!

If I remember correctly for the 3 speed auto you will want 4.11 gears. That's just off the top of my head though. I'm thinking 4.11 for 3 speed, 4.56 for 5 speed, and 4.88 for 4 speed. Maybe Mr Jerry bransford will pop in here.

If you do need 4.11s, I bet Rubicon take offs would be easy to find.

Maybe that's where the 4.10ish I was thinking about came from. it was what I need not what I want.
