Slater451 Stock ratio for a manual trans 2.4L 03 - 04 was 4.10... 05-06 was 3.73 I don't know what the ratio for an auto would be...

Owen_TJ ooo, true...the 2003 switched from the 2.5L to the 2.4L so i apologize for my thread. I dont know the ratios for the 2.4L
09-28-2013 04:31 PM
Holton345 My 2003 SE came stock with 4.56 gearing for the 2.4L. I think this was an "upgrade" though I have heard that there were *no* upgrade options for the SE, so maybe it was all that was offered in 2003 for the 4 banger? IDK...

Owen_TJ 2.5L with a manual came with 4.10's

2.5L with an auto came with 3.73's

Best choice for 33's would be 4.88's

I reccomend using a reputable shop and have them supply the parts so that you will get a warranty with them. This is not one of those projects that most of us can do on our own.
$1000.00 with labor? How much would you assume for parts alone?

NC Bear you will need to regear.

trailhunter Thanks so if I have 4.10, no need to regear to support the weight of 33"/15"n steel wheels?
