I have an 04' rubi. Running 35 nitto mud grapplers. It's a daily driver for now, I need to re- gear. I have seen discussion on 4.88, and 4.56. I don't take it off road unless I'm at my place in the mountains, but put it together the way I did because I wanted to go where I wanted when I wanted. 90 percent of the time when it's in 4 wheel drive they are pretty tame trails, primary acessing remote alpine lakes.
That basically sums up the off road end of things. Now to the " drag" I have noticed recently that when I let of the accelerator there is a lot of drag,almost as if the brakes are slighty applied, it makes me cringe knowing how hard the jeep is working just to go down the road.
Almost wishing I would have never "messed" with it. Any advise s
