Where to get my 2014 Rubicon Re-Geared in Southern NJ

Unfortunately, my 2014 Rubicon has 3.73 gears. I plan an AEV 2.5 lift and 35' tires on 17' Pintler wheels. So, I'm looking to re-gear.
Looking for recommendation for where to get the re-gear done by a professional in South Jersey.

I could give you place in Central Jersey/rt1. They seem doing everything you need however I personally didn't try them yet, my JKU is stock. You could find reviews I believe on web.

Krazy House Customs

Globex Performance in Toms River. I have not used them, but hear very good things about them. They know their stuff.

Im getting nearly 19mpg (highway) right now with 4.10s and 35s (plus 1000lbs in armor) and got 16mpg in my last jeep with 3.21s. Its not the gearing, its how you drive it, and your speed. At 65mph, 4.56s on 35s are perfect, which is NJ's highest speed limit. 4.10s are also double the price because no one makes em.

I called Globex Performance in Toms River this morning and they do the swap including the gears for $999.00 If I choose 4.56 gears.

They strongly recommend I go with 4.56 vs 4.10 gears for 35' tires.

Oh, and they can do it next week. Thank you for that recommendation.

That's a fair price in my opinion.

they also can do the lift work. If I buy a "Rock Krawler" kit I'll get 1/2 price labor.

I was leaning towards the AEV DualSport 2.5 lift, so I started another thread on that pros and cons on that subject

Thats a fantastic price, and I 100% agree with their 4.56 recommendation. If you are considering the AEV 2.5, read my build thread.

Thanks for the +1 on the re-gear and I have just finished reading your entire thread.

Nice job to say the least. I'm also a race guy my self, But I'm into Drag racing for the past 22 years . No into Top Dragster. Neat class, I also run a weekly bracket program at my local track, Atco. Live 5 miles for it.

Anyway, The point is I appreciate products that are executed Perfectly!, Not close, but Perfect!. and I'm willing to pay for them. I buy only the best you can find for my racing habit. Gold Rush Trailers to Aircraft quality nuts and bolts.

You name it and I have bought them at least once.

My day always told me, You'll never be disappointed with the Best!. Or so one would think anyway.

Well considering I was the one driving the Sahara with stock 3.21 gears and then now with 4.56, you can't tell me the drop in mpg was to my driving style. The style stayed the same. The gears and wheels / tires changed. It's not that big of a deal, but mpg does go down when you regear. Plain and simple.

But was it wort it ?

in terms of the Sweet spot where the motor is at its happiest with your 35' tires? Re: Acceleration, and drive ability.

Or in othere words, Do you enjoy driving it more with 4.56 and 35's VS what you had originally, Regardless of millage loss?

You can find lots of 4.10 gears from people changing them out pretty cheap. I'm running 4.10's and 33's, it's perfect for me. Thinking 4.56 with 35's would be the perfect match also

Absolutely worth it. I was just making sure you had all the facts. In my case, Sahara, I had different front differential then rubicon, so I couldn't just buy a set of 4.10 out of someone's rubicon.

I have 4.10s with 35s, and think the perfect balance (aka sweetspot) would be 4.56s. 4.88s would be great if you want a little extra pep, and/or if you are running very heavy (lots of armor, roof racks, lightbars, steel bumpers, tire carrier, winch, etc. Revs are not the only thing one should consider when choosing gears, weight is critical as well.

Here's my stance on the gear situation and MPG.

We run 315/70/17 M/T MTZ's
2.5" Metal Cloak Lift
2013 JKUR Auto
stock came with 3:73 gears
Procal to recalibrate
Ace rear bumber with tire carrier
Ace front bumper with winch
Ace rock rails with Rubi rails

We live on the edge of the Texas hill country. Not flat ground, but no mountains either.

With the above set up, we got 12.5 mpg. The Jeep was lacking power and did not want to up shift early enough. At highway speeds, any mild grade in the road made it downshift or loose considerable speed. Sometimes 10-15 mph.

Geared to 4:56
With the 4:46 gears, we now get about 14 mpg. The shift pattern is nearly back to stock. At highway speeds, it only downshifts on grades when you would expect it to do so. Overall power of the vehicle still seems to be lacking over original stock 3:73 with no lift and tires.

If I had to do it over again, I would study the 4:88's more but just for power.

Ya know, I'm starting to feel sold on 4.56's. As I have 3.73 now with stock Rubi tires. While normal driving, it feels like it would be much happier 4.10 right now. With that said, I'm almost certain the 4.56 with a 35' tire would be what it wants.

Now the question is, 2.5 lift or 3.5 lift

Oh the Pain of all these decisions, LOL

Thanks for the assistance

actually you would be better served replacing the 3.37's with 3.21's as there is a poll that concludes that is all anyone really needs. You will have more then enough power and great mpg as well.

my 14jkur has 4.10's and I am running true 33" tires with aev 2" lift and I agree 4.56 with true 35's would be good. 4.10s are great with true 33"s

Sorry to bring an old thread back from the dead, but did you get the regear done? What are your thoughts on the results, and Globex's work? What was the final cost?

I'm sick of my 3.21s, but I drive a lot of highway (commute 100 miles to NYC 2x a week).
