Cv and sye or regrear

This year I want to save for either rear cv drive shaft and sye or regear. I have a 3" lift and 33" tires. I'm going to college in a year so I'm going to be doing a lot of drive to and from college. So I was just wondering what the ideal things to do is.

What gears you have? I have 33" tires and 4 inch lift and I get ~15 mpg and I also will be traveling to college. I'm putting on a sye and driveshaft this weekend. What are you more concerned about, gas mileage or vibrations? I'd worry more about the vibes....

Since my lift is only 3" I don't get much vibrations. Barely any when accelerating in 2nd gear to 3rd gear. And the the gears I have are what ever came stock for a 2006 sport x 6 speed.

how do you plan on wheeling? do you have a t case drop? personally if its just a road vehicle id leave it alone. regear will take a long time to pay for itself in fuel saving(if any). If you dont have vibes and dont mind a tcase drop then leave it. another option to help with minor vibes would be an mml. or if you want to spend some money you could send it to me

If your Jeep is going to spend the next 4-5 years @ 98% of the on the road, get the re-gear.

It will mostly be on road. And I don't really mind the t case drop. So I guess I will be saving for regearing. Any suggestions on what ratio I should do? I was thinking 4.11 but I'm not sure.

Cost to regear will be between $1200-$1600 mostly depending on labor in your area. Gears run about $200 for each axle depending on brand and install kit for each axle runs about $200 which includes bearings, seals, etc. My mech who is pretty reasonable quoted $500 per axle for labor.

Oh, and 4.56 seems to be the consensus for 33s. If ever considering going to 35s most say 4.88 gears are what you need. There are a few on here that have 4.88 gears and run 33s. That being said, if ever planning on lifting it more or going to 35s it may be best to throw some 4.88s in to save the possible cost of future plans to go larger than 33s.

Thanks for the info! And I don't plan on going much higher so look like 4.56 will be good for me
