4.10 gears installed on the Jeep (from 3.21)... What a difference!!! I was smiling the whole way home from the shop!

No more luggy starts, better acceleration, no more clutch burning reverse, less lash back into the tranny while going slow, seemingly better fuel economy probably as I'm actually using all 6 gears now.

Oh and I thew in a rear Eaton E-Locker for good measure.

I have never been so happy with my Jeep

This makes me so happy considering I'm picking up my new Rubi tomorrow with 4.10's. I'm coming from an '08 with 3.21's.

You will be happy for sure. I'm not planning to go bigger than 33s so it's the perfect gear for me.

My girlfriend was driving behind me and even she noticed that I was driving a lot smoother.

There's a lot of little things that I hated about driving the jeep that suddenly disappeared just from this regear.

It's like Chrysler only test drove the sport model with 29s, 3.21, automatic, and assumed it'll be fine on 32s with manual and called it a day.

Haha, I know the feeling... I was running a 3.21 with 37's!!! It was a dog. Now I am running a 5.13 and it feels like a sports car!!!

Love the "killed a minivan"

Once insurance pays for an aftermarket bumper, grill, etc.....
If you want to get rid of that grill let me know.

Hope everyone is ok

Everyone is ok - I even helped the minivan driver by unbolting her busted fender liner, but still wishing I would have taken a picture of the outer fender skin ripped and impaled on my recovery hook!

Picked it up from dealer service - confirmed they installed/replaced all 5 sensors and viola - no TPMS warning light.

Brought her home and completed my first "official" mod...installed the Amazon special 13" stubby antenna and it tested fine (and looks good).

Also debugged it from the weekend trip and wiped down the paint with Griot's Speed Shine.

Driving to work tomorrow in Arabella and wearing a smile.
