Jason,

I do have 3.21s in there now. Te price also includes the master install kits for front and back. I was just way off in my guess cost because I was unaware of these other items required to change gears is all.

That probably also includes a carrier for the front to go from 3.21 to shorter gears, which adds a hundred or two or so.

Just had my 5.13s put in. 379$ for parts and 750 for labor.

I wish I had done them sooner. The thing fly's through gears now and I just passed someone on the highway in 6th going UPHILL lol. I've not got to test it on trails yet but will soon.

Is replacing gears something I can do on my own? I'm pretty darn mechanically capable, although I've never done such a thing before. I installed my lift alone with no problems and that was the first time I had done anything like it. So is rehearing by yourself doable?

You need a couple of specialty tools to dial in the shims. But that's the easy part. When you go to put it together the last time you need a really big wrench to take care of the crush sleeve. Either a really serious impact wrench or something that can take an enormous cheater pipe with you putting everything you can into it. When I did my gears I had the help of someone who had done them before. He has a 3/4" drive socket set and a 5 foot pipe on the ratchet that we had to use to get the crush sleeve crushed. We're talking 300 lb-ft of torque or more.

I'm really torn on what gears to put in my 2013 JK Rubicon Unlimited w/ Auto transmission w/ 37" tires. It a work in progress and I should have the tires by next week, but unsure of the gears. I look at the charts and have spoke with many people. Some say 4.88 & others say 5.13. I live in rural PA and have a 14 mile commute to work. I'm close to Rausch Creek and plan to spend a good amount of time there. Due to the cost, I only want to gear once. Can anyone help offer advice with supporting data? Thanks!!

In our 2013's auto, we are running the 5.13's. We are also running 40's on heavy Spyder Lock's. Each wheel and tire combo weighs about 150lbs. It is a little sluggish but we are also planning on running a SuperCharger soon as well. We just took the JK this weekend on a 300+ mile round trip and it was getting 15.6MPG. It can do 80+ down the highway without any issues.

I went with 5.13 for 37s and the 3.8. I can't say for sure for the 3.6 but I'd imagine you'd go for 4.88. I'd plug it into a chart and see what rpm you be at.
