Thumbs up 5-13 regeared 2008 rubicon

Definately worth it. Bought the jk already lifted and had put new wheels (20" rockstars with 36" 15" micky t's). Drove it for a month and then had it regeared. So much better. Gas milage went down to around 12 mpg from 15, but damn it was worth it. Off road there is no comparisent.

Interesting, I'm getting 16 mpg TOWING MY TRAILER- with 5.38s-and

I get to use my O/D and cruise control--when I'm on the freeway !

Will wonders never cease

Course I can get 19mpg, if I keepit at 60 mph--tough to do-
