What gear ratio
I just installed the Kargo Master cage and Safari rack on my I6 automatic Jeep. I also have Body Armor front and rear with tire carrier and a winch. It is slowing my jeep down and seems like it takes more gas to get it going. It is running BFG AT 31x10.5x15 with stock rims.
My future plans for the jeep:
2.5-3" OME lift (I want a stock ride (comfort) if not better)
33x10.5x15 BFG MT
My questions is what kind of gear ratio should I install to gain more pep with all the added weight? Gear 4.88 or 4.56? It currently has 3.07 gear ratio. I would still like have her as my DD.
What other components do I need to change out with 2.5-3" OME lift to make it drivable?
Should I go with the OME HD springs or standard springs with all the extra weight? Again, I like comfort ride.
Any help would be great! Thanks
