Nothing really, just slower acceleration and slightly less torque. Doesn't matter too much on an automatic because it won't wear out the clutch like a manual. 3.73 is perfectly fine with 31-32" tires

jeepwayoflife And technically, you would want lower gearing with 32" tires, but its fine if you have no problems now . If you go to 33"+ then i would thibk about regearing, but for now you are probably fine. Check the metal tag on your differential. What is your current gearing?

jeepwayoflife Glad you got correct length shocks for the lift, thats important. I think thats it though! You should be all set now.

what else besides the spacers

2005 Sport 4.0 auto

The PO put 32x11.5s with a spacer lift. Not sure if its 2 or 2.5.

The bushings on the shocks were completely worn out and I had squeaking and metal on metal sound . My shop guy said he thinks the shocks were the wrong size. Long story short I just replaced them with ones for a 2 to 2.5 inch lift.

The PO also installed wheel spacers that were not wheel centric. I replaced these with spidertrax 1.25 that are wheel and hub centric.

Question is, is there anything else I should look for that may be wrong r should have been done on a spacer lift?
