The woman I know who hated the 4.88 gearing with her 6-speed and 35" tires didn't do much (if any) offroading.

|evilmonkey454||30 on the front and 35 on the rear would love some 44's but I'll make these work for now. Maybe I'll change to something different in the future|

|Big Cole||The correct answer is 4.88 gears. 5.13s are not an option with your D30. Don't waste your time or money installing 4.56s|

awesome on the highway. In fact I only have to downshift to 4th on very steep grades. 99.9% of the time I am in 5th and can accelerate rapidly. There is only one grade on the interstate that I have to downshift on. It is on the way to my home county in the mountains (Old Fort grade going into Black Mtn) Going up the Saluda grade on I 26 I can stay in 5th, as well as Cowee Mtn in Jackson / Macon co.
Obviously this is in NC....your mileage may vary.
I am running alloy wheels and lighter TA / KO's and 33's.

|amiller||What rear end do you have? If its a Dana 35, I would look to make a swap for a stronger axle. With 35's and a five speed, I'd go for the 4.88.|

|evilmonkey454||NCBear how is that on the highway or do you just not use the highway that much?|

|evilmonkey454||More than likely I'll be staying with the 35's I really like the way they look. I was leaning toward the 4.56 because the would be a little more power then the 4.10s but a little more highway speed then the 4.88 gears. I found a chart that said the 4.10 would be best fuel the 4.56 would be close to factor and the 5.13 would be most power with 35 inch tires. However never said anything about engine or transmission. So that was the reason for the question thanks again for the quick response. I look forward to wheeling with my new toy.|

4.10-4.88 with 4.88 being optimum for heavy mud terrains and steel wheels.
Now, having said that, I have 4.10's and 33's and I am happy. I was told that I would still be ok if / when I went to 35's. If I do I will re re gear to 4.88.

|evilmonkey454||Wow thanks for the overwhelming response. Sorry I did not give you all the info it is a 5 speed manual transmission|

And are you going to stay with the 35s or maybe 33s in the future?
I have 33s and the 4.0 with manual 5 spd. I love the 4.56 gears in mine. They seem to be the perfect fit for my application.

trying to my gearing right.Help
So I bought my first Jeep. It's a 98 Sahara with a 4.0 and 35inch super swampers and it has a blown rear end it has 3.07s now . I want to up the gearing but not sure where to go. I hear a lot of people talking about 5.13s but for some reason it seems a little to much , as I still want to be able to drive it down the highway with out blowing the motor. Right now I'm torn between 4.88s and 4.56s however I'm reading and being told 4.10s might be the way to go. Please help and I'm sorry for bring up the gearing thing again as I see it on plenty of posts.
