Is this really necessary? If everyone were to search the forum for every question they had...there would only be a couple threads ever posted. I have used the search option on here before, and it really is not all that good. If you dont have anything to contribute other than flame him for making a post...why bother replying to his thread?

I wish I knew more about the JK set up so I could help you out a little better. I am sure a JK guy will chime in soon.

It's all good. I've tried searching the forum Plenty of times. You get lucky sometimes, but the search is usually too broad. Creating a new thread is sometimes the easiest choice.

I have a 2010 jk, with 35's and 3.21 gears right now. the jk has a 3.8 six speed, its ok not great, and I say i get to use 4th some times 5th. I will be getting 4.88's in later this year. I hope this helps you out, I do know others are running with 5.13's but I think 4.88's would be ok.

I have a 4" lift with 35" tires. Gears still stock, which I plan on changing out, but that I'm not sure about what the best ratio would be cause when it comes to changing mine out, I'll be installing lockers in at the same time. However, I'm running fine on 35's..

I'm sure there is a chart that has been posted on here before for gears, with tires sizes, and for auto,manual. for me im going with 4.88 as I have a manual, I could run 4.56, or even 5.13's.

I have a 2011 sahara, with automatic transmission. After a couple of weeks, I put on a 4.5" BDS short arm kit with 35" BFG KM2's...


I have read multiple threads about the sound of the BFG's being as quiet as the stock tires... thats absurd. They are much louder... it is not unacceptable, but not close to the stock 18" Bridgestone Duellers.
I personally like the sound. It hums, but my wife (who is opening up to Jeep life) does not complain like I figured she would.

I am running stock 373 gears, and due to the negativity that I have read about regearing, I purposfully drove it to Chicago (150+ miles) on a business trip last week, and noticed that it is a dog on long upgrade hills out on the highway (I am thinking that a AEV procomp is on my wishlist for the near future to get the transmission shifts fixed?)
However my daily commute is less than 10 miles to work on back roads, and I really do not notice much of a difference. (not near as bad as I expected!)
I keep an eye on the rpm gauge, and before the wheel swap I tried to keep it under 2k. I have noticed that it is a little tougher to do now after the swap. It doesnt go much over 2k, but it is not as fun to drive if I conciously try to keep the rpms under 2k.
It is a little doggy, but not terrible. I am only trying to keep an eye on the rpm gauge because I am trying to get a good idea of real gas milage.
I do not normally even tally gas milage, however I am reading that the milage gets much worse with a tire swap to 35's.

Having said that, my milage is in the 15+ range with stock tires, and 13+ after the swap.

Before the swap, I was really worried about the re-gear that everyone seems to promote on the forum, however it is not near as bad as it sounds. It will take years to repay for a regear with 1-3 mpg less?

They do look good, and overall I am happy with the choice.

in the tj section twice last week there were threads with gearing,there were calculation charts.
I think you need gears in the low 5's

OP and anyone else. If you want to do a gear swap, let me know and I will get you a set. Check out the Vendors Spotlight for my post on re-gearing package. Take care and have a prosperous day.

Namaste,

Allen
