I didn't see a power loss but it did throw off the speedo but just like the previous post just add 5 mph to your speed. Find the correct speedo gear though (i think the black one?) The tires will throw off your odomiter too. I found for every mile I drive I need to add 1.75 miles to the odomitor. I have to be honest I don't know if regearing will correct this issue. I'm happy with the gears I have. They may not be stock though. I think I'm running 3:88s

Mo Kirkwood You were asking if I changed the speedo gear? No, but I do a 10% add for the bigger tires. If my speedo says 50 I am doing 55.There was one of those speed check boxes the highway patrol puts out to check how fast you're going and I used it to do the math. Every 100 miles on the odometer I add 10 miles when I do my gas milage. I see a gear change in my future. I want to take the drag off the axles in high range. I'm starting to hear a howl in the rear axle since I change to bigger tire too. I only have 57,000 miles on it. I do a lot of low range driving too and the lower gears should make things better all around. (I hope.)

The jeep is a daily driver for at least 80 mile round trips. For me I run stock.

You'll want 4.56 if you plan on staying with 33s

A D44 is defiantly okay for 35s. now a D35 can't go bigger then 33s.

TnDz TJ I'm picking my 39 tooth speedo gear today.... after the 4.56's and 33's.... lol 65mph on the speedo is 46mph actually ( GPS tracked)

Shop around.... I found some shops RAPE you for like $90 and I got mine from a Driveline Specialty shop for $22....

Here is a link with a chart for speedo gears.....

Right now with the 3.73s I have no power to pull hills and my fuel milage went down. I have an automatic tranny and drive it with the overdrive off. Of coarse in low range I do OK. Right now I'm lucky to get 15 MPG with it. I was getting more like 18 and I did see 20 once a freeway trip with the stock tires. My TJ also has a Dana 30 in the front and a 35 in the rear which I plan to change out to Dana 44s both front and rear and regear to 4.88s with lockers. I guess the question is, just about how much money do you want to spend. Have fun.
Did you change your speedo gear? That will throw your estimated gas mileage off because your not compensating for the extra tire travel

TnDz TJ I went from 3.07's to 4.56's on 33's.... HUGE improvement.... 4.0 5-speed
