|mrbigjeep||if you don't take it off road much then just go with the 3.73's so that you don't have to get new carriers|

I'm going to stop by the gear shop today and check on carriers , i'd like 3.73's , but 4.11 may be o.k. too . The thing is i don't use my Jeep like y'all do , it's rarely off-road , i'll probably never put tires on taller than 31's . The area i use it in is moutainous , and i hate having to shift out of 5th every hill , lol.
Good reason to switch out front and rear gears , huh.

|1BLKJP||I might be mistaken, but I believe 3.54 to 3.73 is the breakover for the D30. So you would be fine on the carriers. I don't know exactly what the carrier change is on the D35, but the 44 is 3.73 and up.|

|bluvikng||The LJ's have 3.73 gears and the D44 in the rear, as well. It would seem that the D30, and D35 starting with the 3.07 gears, do not have a very big carrier, and would most likely have to be changed out, even going to the 3.54 gears. That being said, I would think you would be a head of the game by just going ahead, and getting the 4.10's, it would give you much better performance, and would allow you to go up to 33" tires, when the addiction hits.|

|mrbigjeep||aah...i forgot about the 4 banger...they always get lower gearing than the 6...at least a lot of the time they do...i've heard some people put 5.13's in 4 bangers!|

|mrbigjeep||i thought 4.10's were with the dana 44's|

You can use 3.73 gears with your existing carriers.
|09-14-2006 08:08 AM|
|mrbigjeep||some jeeps come factory with 3.73's so you wouldn't have to change the carriers|
|09-13-2006 10:57 PM|
I really don't like the 3.07 's , don't pull hard enough . Would i have to change carriers to go to 3.73 ?? How about with rear limited slip ?

|mrbigjeep||shoot you really don't even need new gears with just 31's! especially if you just do moderate wheelin'! i mean it couldn't hurt but you'll be fine without regearing for just 31's|
|09-12-2006 11:31 PM|
|Nick||If you went with 4.10's you'd have to replace both carriers... just use the 3.54's or buy new 3.73's.|
|09-12-2006 02:10 PM|
With the 5 speed go to at least 3.74 on 31's I would go with 4.10's though
You could get away with 3.54's and 31's on an auto if you never went taller on tires.
|09-12-2006 12:58 PM|
|mrbigjeep||3.73's is a stock gear too...go with 4.10's like ^^he said...you'll probably go bigger...and that will give you some great grunt on the trail with 31's and still be fine on the road|
|09-12-2006 12:14 PM|
|4Jeepn||not big enough difference. If your going to swap gears plan two steps ahead.. so figure 4.10's that way when you realize you want 33's your set.|

3.07 to 3.54
Do y'all think there would be much difference switching from 3.07's to 3.54's ?? My buddy wants to sell me his when he swaps to 4.56 . I can't see that theres enough difference to warrant the change . Was 3.54 a factory ratio on TJ ? I think i should hold out for 3.73 . I dont have big tires , but i would like 31's eventually .
