Vin Report

Ok, last simple question, and hopefully you guys/gals are patient with me I had the dealer run a vin report of the options on my TJ when I bought it used. All the standard equip matches up and the optional equip seems to match up as what was put on my TJ, and not just what was an option. It mentions I have 3.73 gears. Is there anyway to verify this? Seems silly, but when I look at Quadratech's chart for speedo gears, the recommended gear for 3.73's and 32" tires is one that is not listed as available for 97+. Seems odd, unless this is the stock gear, which wouldn't make much sense considering my current tires are 225/75 and it lists my wheels as 15x7 ecco aluminum wheels. I was thinking the 3.73 gears were an upgrade that typically came with the bigger tires....but these certainly can't be upgraded tires at this size.

Also, anyone know what the "Trail Rated" badge stands for? Does it have any significance about the options or anything?

Finally....it says I have a trac-lock rear-end....isn't this the option that would place a rocker switch on the console? I have no switch for anything like this.

Just trying to figure out what I got so I know where I need to go with this thing. It also shows the D30 and D35 which I knew were already on there based on the dif covers.

Thanks!

So basically trail rated badge means nothing more than its a Jeep!

Sportsgal.....were the "ecco" wheels actually an upgrade? If so, hate to see what was standard, a bunch of pizza cutters?

My wrangler X came with 3.73s and 225s.

with my 33s and e fans i can turn them fine.

There might be a tag on one of the axles thats stamped 3.73. i think my rear axle has the tag on it.

you need a 32 tooth gear.

trac-lock is a limited slip like unit. Clutch driven as I recall. Slightly better than an open diff. Your rear diff should have a tag that has the gear ratio on it.

LOL

I think the one's you're talking about come on the P215 tires
But...yeah...they look like pizza cutters...kinda make the Wrangler look "weak" in the wheel/tire department.

Yeah, I love my Jeep, but I've only had it less than two weeks and am already itching to get a slight lift and 32's.

Thanks gals/guys, that helps me understand what I've got on this thing!

tires and gears

I have a 01 sport with the dana44 and 3.73 gears in the rear and a dana 30 in the front. I am running a 4 in. lift with 33 bfg mud terrains and have no real major problem turning them. I believe if your just going up to 32's and no bigger than 33's you shouldn't either unless you have a dana 35 in the rear( notorious for breaking).

now im not saying the dana turdy 5 is a good axle. but it all depends on how you wheel it. ive ran 33s on my dana 35 for almost a year wheeling on moderate to difficult trails. im not saying it wont break but i use more finesse then just stomp on it and go method. my rear axle is also open which im sure helps. ill eventually have a 8.8,44, or super 35kit but for now its holding up fine. I wheel 3 to 4 times a month as well. all the videos i see of the 35 breaking is some yahoo stomping on it trying to go up hill and the jeep is bouncing.

I also have spare axle shafts just in case.

but if your gonna be an occasional easy to moderate trail wheeler. theres no reason the 35 cant handle it

I have the D35 rear. But since this Jeep is my daily driver, it'll probably see light-moderate trail riding. Plus I have no wheelin' experience, so I'm sure it'll start out real simple. Once its paid off, I'll jack it up even higher, add some 35"s....and do some real rock climbing then! But I hate to keep breaking something I got to drive to work!
