Ratio on 05 6spd
Adding 33's to an 05 4.0 X 6 speed with 3.73's With this combo where should I be with gear ratio? This will be mostly for around town, student commuting and mild trails, ruts and mud during the hunting season. No rock crawling.

Mines an 06 6 speed with 33x12.50 tires. I'm happy with mine like it is for now. Still getting around 17mpg average.

Nice jeep!! What lift did u go with? and did you have any problems with shifting after the lift? Do you have a SYE?

Thanks, Don

I have a '05 6-spd LJ and my read is the 33s will work. Ultimately I may look at regearing to 4.10 or even 4.56 for that matter after I add 33s myself. I figure I have to put a locker in yet anyway so I'll do it then.

The lift is a 2" bb & a 3" bl. No sye. I did put a few washers under the transfer case skid plate for minor vibes.
