Hi all! Soon once i find the funds....(being a 17 year old with no job to be found is hard..) I will be regearing my jeep. It is a 2.5l with an ax-5 5 speed transmission with a dana 30 front and dana 35 rear. Right now my gears are at 4.11 on 31s and my gas mileage is terrible at 70mph running at about 3100 rpms. I make many long trips at that speed and im about to put on 33 inch bfg ats. Im thinking i need 4.88 gear ratio. If you all dont think so please let me know! Im looking for the best mpgs possible with 33s, a 4 banger, and a manual 5 speed. Also, I should not have to upgrade the carrier for this ratio, correct?
Thanks a bunch!
