MrHix I have a 98 4cyl and run 33 bf muds with a dd of 75+ miles with stock 4:10's, i can hit 75 all day in 4th and will shift to 5th if its level, once i hit a hill its back down to 4. Mind you, i have a fresh Jasper motor, header, cold air intake, but I do have a heavy tire carrier, front and rear bumpers and one seriously heavy tool bag.

it's a 2.5 I use as a surf wagon so I wasn't going to do any major suspension or engine work just yet.

Please advise
I had 31 on stock I was fine just rub your fender flares if you go on bumpy roads not going to destroy anything

My friend has the same Jeep as me with a 5 speed...no power at all..struggles to go up small hills with 33's

Was considering a V8 change but more and more I drive it I'm liking this 4 cylinder. Definetly needs lower gears for around town driving.

Drove to work this morning at 55 mph at about 2300 rpm
It is cause you have the auto, I was asking around ppl say the 5 spd has no power, I go 75 with 31s so 33s imma go 55 kinda sucks lol

I don't see how that is even possible. I have stock 4.10 gears, the 4 banger, 33s and I've never been able to get over 55.

now, there are 4 things you need to think about when deciding on a gear ratio
1. tire size
2. engine
3. transmission
4. what can fit in your axles.

you already have 1 and 2 figured out, which leave 3 and 4 left.
now, do you have the 5 speed manual or the 3 speed auto?
if the 5 speed, then you want 4.88 gears, with the auto, 4.56s would be better suited.
since both those gear ratios are avalible for the dana 30/35 axles you have, then you do not need to worry about number 4.

another thing to start thinking about is if you really want to spend money with that rear dana 35, or replace it with something better. but that is a whole other can of worms.
Yea I got the 5 spd and not doing anything else to it, in 2 years when the mrs car is paid I plan on getting an lj or jku and have my yj for trails and beach
