LOL, I'm not that good at math so for me it is a lot easier to just get the right gear rather than trying to do all that math while at a rest stop or where ever. And I have no idea if you are right.



Here are a couple of links to calculators that I use in case anyone is interested.

4Lo.com :: Final Gear Ratio, Crawl Ratio, Tire Size Calculators

Gear Ratio Calculator

And here is another gear ratio chart just because.

HULIO Awesome. Thanks. I saved that chart. So that's the gear I need to buy. I'll have to see about getting one of those

kjeeper10 I just replaced mine 28's to 31's (30T-27T)

My mileage is perfect. It was off about 3-5% (hard to tell) I just filled up for the first time, same mpg? I thought I would see a little difference but I did not. Going to run another tank and see what happens.

scgeek12 lol you should see how far off my camaro is, 393 gearing with stock sized tires.. if i take it to work (13 miles each way so 26 total) it adds about 100 miles to my odometer :P

Third, you cannot be off exactly 20 mph all the time since we are talking about a difference in ratios.

Here is an example.

Lets take a completely stock jeep with 3.07 gears and change them to 4.56 gears. When the speedometer says 30mph it is actually doing 20mph(a difference of 10mph). At 40mph the actual speed is 27mph(13mph off). At 50mph it's off by 17mph, at 60mph it is off by 20mph and at 70mph it is off by 23mph and so on.

GrassKicker Yes, it will run up your milage also. Swap out the speedo gear to (I think it a 36 tooth or 39 tooth), I can't remember which. It's a 5-10 minute job.

psycho
I got a question....

with the new gears (4.56's) and axles my speedo is exactly 20 MPH off.........will this effect my odometer? i filled the jeep up and before the swap i would only get around 160 miles per tank (3.07 gears) now ive fot 170 on the trip meter and still over 1/4 tank? is this too good to be true?
