Nice jeep. Your options appear pretty clear. Stick with the larger tires and upgrade your axle ratio or sell your current tires and go back to a 30 inch tire or smaller. Looks like the cost is close with the axle swap a little more expensive.

You definitely got a flatland Jeep. I have yet to check to see what my wife's axle ratio is, but it seemed to do OK in 6th when the 32s were on (got a second set of wheels and put stock size tires on for the non-white season).

I don't know of any shops in Denver other than Bear Frame and Axle that could do a gear swap. Maybe Drive Train Industries in Aurora. If you do decide to change the gearing, may as well get a set of lockers while you are at it. Don't want to have to do it twice - go big or go home.

Me - STAY AWAY FROM BIG-O on Arapahoe & (east of Peoria). Not real bright over there.

Do the gearing brotha! It's like $1200 for parts and labor and you'll be happy. To get good clearance with them tires I'd do a 3.25"-4" Lift. I did the 3.25" and they'll clear 32's no prob.
