amerijeep Yeah, I think that is correct. It is going to take more force to turn both wheels instead of just the one. I did the same thing on my ex-4X Dakota. There was a noticeable difference in power distribution. I regretted doing it because it was more of a daily driver than anything, but I was young and I wanted a bad-a** rig. Live and learn.

mrbigjeep well i guess it takes more power to get both of the tires spinning than just one...cause two weighs more than one??

bobinyelm You have me confused.

You are saying you have LESS power now that you have a limited slip. The ONLY difference limited slip should make is that when one tire starts slipping, the other picks up some (not all) of the load.

That should give you better, not worse, performance overall.

Are you saying that now that you have LSD, you are taking the Jeep into more challanging conditions you didn't go before (like mud) so you NOTICE less power than you would LIKE to have?

Maybe w/ LSD the engine boggs under the load of both tires working in the mud vs. having only one tire spinning helplessly?

It still runs fine on the road, but i'd like to have a little more power for the mud. Any suggestions?

WranglerHawg $$$...I could get the gears with the install kits for 400 bucks. My buddy and I would put them in, but still, its 400 bucks. And i cant make up my mind between 4.56 and 4.10.

mrbigjeep if you haven't regeared yet then that would definitely be the best thing to do! (although its not cheap)
