Awesome. You have the auto right? So would you compare this new ratio to everything acted stock with 30-31" tires?

I think so, let me check it against the gps and let you know. I will say that the gearing seems more correct than the stock gearing with the 33s. It also does better on the fwy, esp on cruise control. Before it would really wander around the speed that the cruise was set at. Now, it holds that speed much better with less of a need to rev up or downshift.

Cool... It seems as if you can never get a straight answer about what to regear to with 33's.

I have heard everything from "i'm fine with my stock gears" to "you really need at least 4:56 and even better 4:88"

It seems like 4:11 is a reasonable compromise but I wouldnt exactly know.

I would have gone with 4:56 if I was thinking of goingto 35s, but that isnt in the cards... at least for a long while.

I think I need at least another week before I test the new gears out there.. otherwise, would probably come out for a couple of hours of Jeep play.

Dang you for making me post this twice...

In my thinking you should go up one step for each step (2") of tire size. For instance if you have 30"/31" tires and 3.07's then when you go to 33"s go up to 3.73's. if you have 3.73's go to 4.11's. Engine and transmission type make a difference. What one guy needs for an automatic is different than for a standard, or 4 cylinder vs 6. There is a great site to figure out what you need.

http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

It lets you do side by side comparisons of how your gears will affect your rpms and speed. If you want to retain stock driving characteristics just put your stock set up in one side and then on the other put in your new tire size and play with the gear ratios. You can figure out what gears you need to keep the same rpms at highway speed etc. It requires that you know your transmission and transfer case type, but if you know that it's easy.
