slf41002 Now I am convinced!!!!!You really do try your best to make things harder than they have to be Just J/K Trip I had to give somebody a hard time the old lady is within slapping distance.

Triple88a update.. i installed the 29 tooth gear and of course, gues what? i took a test drive, everything worked great. Next mourning i find a nice puddle of oil on the ground. The original o-ring was way to loose so i guess i pinched it. Anyhow i went to ace hardware and found a replacement. On the package it says

1-11/16 X 1-1/2
X 3/32 #86 ORINO

Sorry for the confusion...the stock gear was the 29-tooth gear. I am now running the 36-tooth gear with my 33" tires.

slf41002 Yeah If I actually get a chance to get my own vehicle in the shop I will check it.I just put a fan relay on a 2001 Grand Cherokee today and you have to take the whole grille,bumper cover,and both headlights and headlight buckets out just to get to the blasted thing.It sits right behind the passager side headlight but you can't get just the headlight out like most cars they are bolted to the headlight bucket from the inside and the bucket or basket the headlights sits in is a one piece deal that goes all the way across the front to the other headlight.If the headlight came out like most it would have been a 10 min job but nooo.

Triple88a alright Sherman, keep me updated.

To see what gear you have stock you can pull the speedo counter thingy from the tcase and the numbers should be engraved into the gear.
06-06-2008 06:58 PM
bpowa My miles are not that off since I got 32'' tires.. but I am planning on 32 tooth gear.. just to make myself feel better about the mpg..
06-06-2008 05:24 PM
slf41002 Hey Trip I sent that PM but hold on a day or so to see if I can find out the tooth number I have with stock.I would hate for you to send it to me and I have a 29 tooth stock gear allready and someone else could have used the 30more than me.Allthough if thats the case I could just forward it on also so how ever.If you get around to it just let me know.Later!!!

I'm getting mine for 75 bucks as we established earlier so i'd return the favor ON for the same price i'll give you the gear (still new in wrapper). I just want to receive the 29 tooth gear to make sure its the same thing. I got another gear earlier this month that did not fit so..


jk.. i'll give it to you for free as i'm forwarding the favor from Bob
Thank you

Hulkboy, with 3 mph i woudlnt even mess with it but its up to you. Now if you're like mine with my stock gear and my 35s.. almost 10 mph difference at 60 mph.
06-06-2008 11:39 AM
hulkboy sorry i dont wanna hijack but after i installed my 33s i figured my guage was off.. yet i was getting around 15 mpg still.. i thought it would have been considerably less, so i got the handy TOMTOM..(gps) to see how much it was off.. when i was going 60 it said 62.. i have 3.73 w/a manual trans.. when i got the gear 31 spline gear the guy at the dealership said the new one i got could still be off by no more than 3mph because the actual size of the 33s may be off.. so would it even be worth installing since appearantly the jeep is only off by 2mph?? or could my gps be off..

Triple88a lol we'll see how cool my pro comp will be lol
06-06-2008 12:49 AM
spanky a electric fan is on my list somewhere.. i think theyre pretty cool.. haha get it ?
06-06-2008 12:29 AM
Triple88a lol i donno man, i've got so many mods on the list. I think i might do the gear last. I have my radiator electric fan, i wanna add a hydrogen cell, i wanna try my bumper, and at last the gear.. just adds up lol.. if i do the gear then my "base" or current mpg might be off.

I ran it up to 248.7 miles and filled up 16.505 gallons of gas.

You still can, the benefit with Bob's being you'd have an accurate speedometer with his 29 tooth gear.
