You can get carriers for about 70 $ from East Coast Gears.

DaveinHouston I've got 4.88s on my YJ with 5 speed, 4.0 and 33s. It's perfect off and on road. I'm running 5.13s on my '03 Rubi with a manual tranny and 35s. It's good but "feels" a little lower than the YJ.

Oops, in my haste - didn't see the OP had a 5-speed manual (guilty of not reading the whole thread). Yup, JB's on the money with the 4.56 ratio .

Most "techs" give the same ratio recommendations whether it's a truck, Jeep, 4/6/8 cylinder engine, 4/5/6 speed manual transmission, 3-speed/4-speed automatic. They don't know/understand all the nuances of how engine sizes and transmission types affect what ratio should be installed for all the various types of vehicles they work on.

Where Jeeps are concerned, we are the experts. For your 4.0L engine, 5-speed, and 33" tires, go with 4.56.

I made the same mistake 12-14 years ago you are trying to do by listening to those tech who are recommending 4.10 for your 33" tires. Within several days of installing the 4.10 gears, I knew I had made a mistake by ignoring my friend's recommenations for 4.56 and instead going with 4.10 because I was afraid the rpms would be too high with 4.56. Big mistake.

You can pick them up at a junkyard for $100.

Are you planning on doing this yourself?

Changing gears is not a job most can do.

yes you will need to change carriers.
05-03-2011 09:31 AM
dbbd1 If you have 3.07, I think you will need to swap out the carrier too. 3.73, no. Go see Dave at Rob's Offroad out in Clackamas.

98 wrangler Go with 4.56s you will love it . and if you ever want 35s you will still be fine.
05-03-2011 12:50 AM
Hendog I have a stick...
05-03-2011 12:23 AM
Ratdaddy Same here, 4:10 with auto and 33s
05-03-2011 12:13 AM
doclouie Do you have an auto or a stick? I asked Jerry the same question and he said 4.10 for the auto and 4.56 if you have a stick.

SilverTJMike 4.56' i get 3000 rpm but i have 33's and 4.88's but I can haul ass up I-70 so its worth it, maybe 35's next year. I also have a 6 speed manual. 4.10's and 33's not so great but better than 33's and 3.73's which is what I had.

Checkout grimjeeper.com and put in your values, it will show the rpm's and at what speed.

4.10's or 4.56's for 33's???

OK, I got my 3" Zone Lift installed (awesome!) and my 33" Mickey Thompson Baja MTX (even awesomer!) installed.

It has come to my attention that I have 3.07 gears. I'm not one of these sheep that thinks that just because the guys on the forum say I need different gears that I should get them but the 3.07's are just too low, or high, or whatever.

I'm assuming that 3.73's would just take me back to stock so I think I want 4.10's. But many people say that I should get 4.56's. I DO NOT want to be running at 3k RPM's @ 70mph the whole way to work so I don't think that I want 4.56's. Also when I offroad I am almost always in 4 Low.

What say you?
