I am new to Jeeps and the forum, I have a 97 Tj that I bought about two months ago. Have done a few things to it and am self teaching as I did not have a lot of experience growing up. What I need help with is gear ratio, I have the 2.5 5 speed and it seems to run just fine, I have put a new valve cover on and no major leaks. 126,000 miles on it. So i read on here where to find the ratio on it, I got under it last night and I did find a circle tag and it said New Process gear, it had an assembly number and s/n number then at the bottom it had 272 ratio. My jeep has 32x11.50x15 tires and lift on it. I need guidence on where to go with this, do I need to look at regearing and at what ratio. Like I said new but very excited to learn as I go. Otherwise seems to run great, but cant keep speed on the highway here in Oklahoma. (wind) Want to be able to get into the hills and play on the family land. Thanks for any help!!!!!!!!
From what I read this gear selection is way off.
