when you regear you'll still have to get the correct speedo gear...you'll have to look at a chart and find the one you need for your gear and tire size...if you have the stock one and regear you'll still be off

To keep stock performance with 33s, you'll need a 4.56 gear ratio.

you'll want better than stock performance because of the added weight of the tires...

nicolas-eric good question.
now i have 32s with 3.07 gears. the speedo is modified for that.
what do i have to change after installing the 4.56 gears?
i want to put on some 33s later.

rich1014 ProComp 33x12.50 Xterrains and 3.73 gears were ok only for a short while. I went to 4.56 gearing and am much more satisfied.

Here in chicago it gets way to cold to do work. I'm preatty sure you wouldnt want to work on ur rig outside when its all really windy at 30-40F or 0-5C. I wouldnt really care if i have to drive on the stock rubber for a month or two as long as i'm up higher than every 1 else

Thanks all for the 34s info.. i've never seen any info on it such as gears and stuff...

here´s a site where you can simulate how your TJ will look like with different tires/lifts.
Well first of all ill be running that with stocks for a while until i make enough for tires I wanna get the lifts done over the summer since the tires take 10 minutes to install

I've never seen 34s is there such thing?

Would u look at that i can fit 35s with only 1" lift

i did the 4" lift with a 2" BB (200-250$) and a 2" BL (100-150$).
that gives me enough space for 33s and makes no driveline problems. and it was easy to install.

As the lift goes i'll probably now go with 3" and 2" bl.. and 33s.. higher gears are also on my list.

I'm thinking about it. As soon as I put on 32s, I'll wish I had 33s.

03-05-2007 12:01 PM
DocG2828 Well I made the leap of faith and ordered my parts. Despite alot of advice saying go 33's.....I decided on 32's. Here's what I'm getting

2" spacer lift
Rancho 9000x adjustables
32x11.5 Procomp All terrains
15x8 Black Rock Crawlers with the d-slots
32 tooth speedo gear

That should do it for now, oh and I ordered the install accessories to put my Kenwood stereo in and some new Infinity speakers to replace the stockers in the dash and soundbar.

I'm sure the new gears and bumpers and exhaust and everything else will be coming soon enough. But I've only had this less than a month and already spent 1200 bucks....gonna have to wait a little while to get other stuff or the wife will kill me. At least with what I've got on order, it'll look sweet and be a little more capable offroad. The adjustables should be nice too

Absolute Offroad Just remember that one of your forum sponsors has GREAT deals on axle parts/lockers!!!! I install at least 2 sets of gears a WEEK, and can guarantee you, that you dont know what your missing till you regear!!!! As for Dana 35's, well I have many broken ones in my shop too..... Heres the link:www.absoluteoffroadphx.com take a look and If anyone has any questions, feel free to give me a call!!!!

nicolas-eric i have the http://performanceaccessories.com/ 2" bodylift. it came with complete instructions. on over 40 sites every little step was explained with pictures.

after the budget boost it was the 2nd thing i installed on a car by my own. it took less than 4 hours.

hre you can see the difference between 2" BB and 2" BB and additional 2" BL. on the left side the BL pucks are already installed. on the right side there´s "only" the 2" BB.
click me

i only did a 2" BL. if you install 1" BL and a 1" MML you only have to put in the eleven 1" bodylift pieces and the 1" motor mounts. thats all.
heres a good write-up for a 1" bodylift:

Triple88a Nicolas-Eric did your Body lift come with instructions or anything of that kind? Which was it? Linky?
