Stock gears

The stock 307 gears are probably why my Jeep stalls out so much when i'm climbing, right?? A 410 should work alot better???

4.10 or 4.56 if you want to go bigger in the future.

Serious? My 3.07's with 32's ain't bad at all... but I have an auto so that might be the reason, even though its a 3-speed.

How hard is it to swap out gears? Is it something I'd want a pro to do or can a shade tree do it??

4.56's would take you from a 33:1 to a 49:1 crawl ratio which would help great deal. (assuming with the 6spd your 1st gear is 4:1)

the difference between 3.07 and 4.56 is about 50%. the RPM will be about 50% higher after regearing. you´ll be able to use your 6th gear again. now the RPM in 6th gear should be that low that you cant hold the speed at highway speed.
and your gas mileage will become better.

when you regear you should think about installing some lockers. the time you need for installing it is nearly the same.

He means you don't want to over gear so that when you are in 6th your RPM won't be too low that it does nothing.

OK but with lower gears i.e. 4:11 or 4:56 wouldn't the rpm's be higher? Like say 60mph in 6th gear with 3:07 gears at 2000rpm would be 4000 rpm's in 6th gear with 4:56 gears right?
