Are you talking to me dear?

exboomer I believe with the auto trans (3spd) 4.10 would be the correct gear ratio with 33s.

Ageless Stranger I'm about to do this myself. I'm getting the Ultimate TJ/LJ Kit from dirk at DPG Offroad. That is the 2 1/2 inch OME lift plus a 1.25" JKS body lift, which you'll need for 33s. I plan on regearing to 4.56 in the near future after the lift/tires/wheels are installed.

Also, I plan on going with the heavy coil rates as I'll have a full size spare on a carrier on the back and a winch out front.

What gear ratio

I just installed the Kargo Master cage and Safari rack on my I6 automatic Jeep. I also have Body Armor front and rear with tire carrier and a winch. It is slowing my jeep down and seems like it takes more gas to get it going. It is running BFG AT 31x10.5x15 with stock rims.

My future plans for the jeep:

2.5-3" OME lift (I want a stock ride (comfort) if not better)
33x10.5x15 BFG MT

My questions is what kind of gear ratio should I install to gain more pep with all the added weight? Gear 4.88 or 4.56? It currently has 3.07 gear ratio. I would still like have her as my DD.

What other components do I need to change out with 2.5-3" OME lift to make it drivable?

Should I go with the OME HD springs or standard springs with all the extra weight? Again, I like comfort ride.

Any help would be great! Thanks
