Hey guys just installed my 33 x 10.50 km2 on my tj. It has a zone 4.25 lift. I have d30 front /d44 rear. Looking to put some gears and lockers in it. What would be a good ratio to drop in there for a dd and what would be a good budget locker to run?
I have the stock 4.10 gears in my LJ rubicon with 33" tires. It has the 4.0L 6speed. I like it the way it is. First gear is actually useable on the pavment now (i use to start off in 2nd). The only down side is it doesnt like steep hills in high gear i will loose a few mph if i dont down shift to 5th.
Based on that, I'd go with a Detroit Softlocker (aka Detroit Locker). It is dirt-simple to use offroad, is very well behaved on road, and is nearly bulletproof. It takes a few days for it to train you how it likes to be driven so it is well behaved but that's minor. I LOVED my Detroit Locker I had in my previous (stolen) TJ. Point-and-shoot wheeling.
