Honestly gearing isnt my best subject lol. But I am pretty sure 4.10s s a good gear or maybe higher. search the forums and the more experienced and knowledgable guys could def point you in the right direction. sorry about the jeep. if it makes you feel better i dont have a read drive shaft in mine at the moment. lol but i do have tom woods drive shaft ready to go. hihgly suggest them if you ever need a drive shaft
Ill check out that ox locker. see my jeep has a 4in with 33s and it is my dailey driver and toy. and when i off road its not like small easy stuff. i wheel it haha i dont offroad much anymore because i broke alot on aetna mountain. plus im out of a jeep for 2 weeks right now gettin the tranny rebuilt. Any idea what a good gear ratio would be for 6in lift with 35?
I personally have the automatic in the front and will be buying an OX locker for the rear dana 44 when the money comes around. heres a link for them. its cable actuated selectable. only a few hundred more than the detroit. maybe save up a bit more? think about it a bit. and gas all depends on your gearing.
I didnt regear my jeep and havent been inside to tell what the gears are, but it is regeared because theres no way i would be able to go as fast as i do in the thing if i wasnt lol. but my mpg is around 1. Im completely guessing btw. I dont necessarily care too much because its not my Daily Drive. I only drive it a few times a month.
this lift is about $3k I bought the jeep with it tho but its worth every single penny, great lift, very stout, ive broken rocks with the arms before and not a single dent. if you dont have a SYE you will need one, and extended break lines if you dont have those yet. ummm cant think of anything else right now, but the 6''RE is great no need to go any hire, the tire size is what brings your axles and diffs up. so 35s will be great and you will have plenty of room for flex and plenty of tire to get over what you need, I personally could go bigger tires, I have plenty of room. but theres no need. I like the extra flex. and as far as the detroit locker, I couldnt tell you for sure, but its an automatic locker, IMO i think automatic lockers are great for the front because you dont use 4h or 4l all the time, but you are constantly in rear wheel drive, thus the automatic lockers could possibly give problems. I am sure they are great lockers and do their job and some people like them.
How much did that cost ya for the lift?
i have a 4in suspsension lift right now but i want to go bigger. and im looking into the super 35s with a detroit locker. opinion?
Also, how bad is your gas mileage?
