Newbie to a Jeep!!

So i got my first Jeep!!

99 4cyl 5spd, 4" superlift, and 35" bfg at!
I got this monster south of Milwaukee, WI and drove it the 5hrs back north and man its definetly not a highway cruiser lol!! And soon came to realize every Wrangler that i passed was waving at me, i then realized a jeep is not just a vehicle its a culture!

Gotta say I love it but need more power! Im gonna start with gears and lockers any suggestions on ratios?

Nice meeting you and Im going to use the heck outta you all!!! For information that is!

Sounds like a great Jeep! Congrats.

I'd get some 4.88 gears, but determine what axles you have. If you have a Dana 35 rear, I wouldn't add a locker to it.

Congrats! I can't imagine how pokey that thing must be on the interstate, but should be a thrill off road.

Where do you live?

Dana 35 can't take the abuse of 35 inch tires and a locker. Enjoy the jeep bug it bit me over 15 years ago. Enjoy and have fun
