I have a question for a VETERAN JEEPER...

I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport.

This is what I am putting on it:
- 2.5 pro comp lift.
- 33'' Pro Comp xtreme all-terrain tires.
-I have 17 inch wheels already.

Question: By putting all of this on will I lose power? Or is it neccessary to change the gears? Thanks for your help!



THANK YOU!

If you have 3.21 gears Id upgrade to atleast 4.10s, but if you have 3.73s you can definitely get by on that setup. Just buy a flashpaq and you wont notice the difference.

One more question: Thanks!

I have a 3.73 gear ratio. If I use that Flashpaq will it be the same power as before?


Thanks! your advice was awesome!

I'm guessing you have the stock 17" wheels. If so, you'll need to add spacers to your list.

You didn't say which transmission you have. If it's automatic I would definitely user a programmer to tune the shift points. If it's manual all you need to do is adjust the speedometer for the tire size.
