I am more inclined to do the regear based on being able to do some moderate off-roading. I am also not pleased with the lack of current performance. I received my build sheet yesterday to see what I have exactly
4spd Auto Tranny
Front Dana 30
Rear Dana 44
What is the best gear ratio for this set up with my 33's? What is the max ratio I can put in these axles?

|dawhitesJKU||that might be your best option if your not planning to upgrade ur tires or add more weight to your jeep. regearing is pretty expensive but way worth it.|

|MrMojoRising||How does the Flash Paq work? Hard to install or calibrate? I may try that route|

|Neral22||I have a 2009 with 3.73 gears and 33" tires. I bought a superchips flash paq and it was like night and day with shift points. Much more tolerable and $300 was cheaper than the $1500+ for regear. It no longer jumps to OD on and off on highway. If you plan to go bigger, you will want the regear. Good luck!|

Yeah, you will probably be better off regearing. or you can trade it in for a 12-14, problem solved....

|MrMojoRising||What all will I need to purchase for a regearing? How will I know if I indeed have 3.21?|

|MrMojoRising||Ok, I will check the gearing. I am just not pleased with the performance and loss of RPMs at highway speed. It is really dogging now.|

The stock gears are 3.21, 3.73 an upgrade. Check your window sticker or build sheet. If you have the max tow package you will have at least 3.73. I have 295/70/17 Nitto Grapplers with 3.73 and a 2.5" lift with no problems.
Those are small 33's so either way you will be fine. re-gearing not needed.

|dawhitesJKU||Start searching local shops. Regearing varies in price depending on the shop...anywhere from 1000-1500. Too low a gear will result in poor dd performance with ur tires, however will be able to run a bigger tire setup. For ur setup, I would look into the 4.56 gearing. A lil shorter than the stock rubis but that's the next available gearing for ur jeep besides the stock 3.21,3.73. I have a similar setup as urs however I have a 2012. I'm still able to use cruise control.|

Help - 33"s on now but should I regear?
Thanks in advance for your help. I am a bit confused about what I should do and there seems to be a lot of different opinions on this subject. I have a 2011 JKU Sahara which I put a Teraflex Level kit on and 33" 285/70/17's on. Love the look and the lift. I drive a lot of highway/ interstate miles but occasionally take it mudding/trailing in Central Ill. Since the 33"s which actually measure 32", I have lost a lot of "pep". I have read that 3.73 's come stock. For my usage, what should I regear with? Where should I buy the kit? Wll regearing help with maintaining speed on the highway? Cruise control bouncing gears.
