I put in 4.56 to go with my 33" tires. I've only driven it 20 miles or so, so far but its awesome! In third gear at 25mph (thank God my speedometer reads true now) I'm at 1900rpm. Low enough to be comfortable, high enough to climb hills or accelerate with no issues. At 60mph I'm at 2200rpm in fifth gear. The only thing I have to get used to again is tlthat you go through first gear very quickly. Overall I'm very pleased and am glad my Jeep isn't struggling anymore.

Well the check engine light is 2 o2 sensors. Both pre cats. I got one and ordered the other.

Also done a sea foam.

Or you may want to give it a try and see how starting out in 2nd gear would be. At most stop signs or lights i start out in 2nd, If im on an incline or in a parking lot, or just want to go slow i start out in 1st. Just thought i would throw in my 2 cents. If i start out in 1st in traffic they pile up behind me quick and just about rear end me cause it takes off to slow and way to low of a gear for normal traffic.

Installed 2 o2 sensors. The front was easy. The rear took an impact to get it loose. Man I love my air tools.
