444 You can play with this calculator if you want to see what gearing and tire size does to your rpm.

ryanmurray i have a 6 but i ditched the stock axles and went with a toyota 8 inch and a waggy 44 with 4.88s for relativly cheap and i run 35s but i could run 38s just have new 35s so dont see the point not to mention i go damn near anywhere cause im locked front and rear but i would say 4.88s would be a good ratio for 4 cyl

Irongrave OP 4:88s are at the limit of the dana 30 any lower and you run the risk of snapping ring gears/pinions

Look into the teralow 4:1 low range kit for the 231 they will help you get a lower crawl ratio.

Mallia420 Stock gears which i think are 410 as well

Blacksurt What gears do you have now? I'm not sure about YJ's but my TJ and most 4 banger TJs have 4.10's.

4Jeepn Yes the rpm's will be up.
04-03-2011 10:13 AM
Mallia420 Now increasing that ratio will give me more rpms right? The diffs will be spinning faster?

4Jeepn I would say pass 4.56 and move right to 4.88's with your setup. I would also say that before you dump money into the dana 35, look at a ford 8.8 swap or dana 44 rear.

yj 4 cyl

I have a 1990 yj with 33s and im looking to regear the front and rear diff but not sure what to upgrade it to a 456 or 488. 5th gear is as useless as a screen door on a sub and didnt change much from the 30in tires to the 33s. Suggestions anyone?
