4.88 gears and 33" tires

I just got my 4.88 gears in my JK.

JK X, 2 door, 6 speed, 33" ProComps, 2" lift, Hypertech, air intake, exhaust.

It runs better than new! 70mph @ 2900 rpm , take off in 2nd gear, never shift down for hills or to pass

You'll get better fuel economy with small 35's and 4.88's --- but I bet your crawl is unbelievable right now.
Don't wheelie too often; it drives the ladies wild.
