Wow, you are getting about half of what my 2012 Rubi does. What gearing and equipment do you have now? What tires?

Have you checked the speed via GPS or done and speed corrections for the larger tires? A rubicon will have 4.10/11 gears from the factory... Next question, auto or stick?

I've got 35s on my 2011 rubicon. I just changed out the stock 4:10s for 4:88s. I very happy with the results. Better gas millage, and a more powerful feel.

Ok more so I'm running factory gears now the tires are Toyo m/t which are wearing quick don't know if I'm gonna get another set of those its an auto street how does it run and you said you had a newer jeep did it come with 44 front and rear also they did do a speed correction but I don't know if they screwed that up another problem I'm having is it get stuck at high rpm if I get on it too hard inside the throttle body

How much did the re-gear run ya? I also have stick 3:73 with 33" tired. Looking to step up to 35". Was told minimum of 4:10 gears. What is your opinion? I have a 2011 JKU.

Ok, obviously English isn't your first language but I'll take a stab and see if I can help. Toyo M/Ts don't tend to wear too quickly so you should likely have the alignment checked. You can verify your speedometer with any gps, if it was adjusted they may have done it incorrectly. Stuck at high rpm with an automatic means trans problems, major or minor who knows but it should shift. I'm not sure what you are saying about the throttle body.

Both set's of yukon gears were aroung 650.00. I dont no what kind of trans. you have, I have a six speed stick. I also have the D44s front and rear. Makes a difference. If it were mine, I would go no lower than 4:56 with the 35s. Again, Im very happy with the 4:88s.
