Newbie to a Jeep!!
So i got my first Jeep!!

99 4cyl 5spd, 4" superlift, and 35" bfg at!
I got this monster south of Milwaukee, WI and drove it the 5hrs back north and man its definetly not a highway cruiser lol!! And soon came to realize every Wrangler that i passed was waving at me, i then realized a jeep is not just a vehicle its a culture!:punk:

Gotta say I love it but need more power! Im gonna start with gears and lockers any suggestions on ratios?

Nice meeting you and Im going to use the heck outta you all!!! For information that is!

Sounds like a great Jeep! Congrats.

I'd get some 4.88 gears, but determine what axles you have. If you have a Dana 35 rear, I wouldn't add a locker to it.

Congrats! I can't imagine how pokey that thing must be on the interstate, but should be a thrill off road.

Where do you live?

Dana 35 can't take the abuse of 35 inch tires and a locker. Enjoy the jeep bug it bit me over 15 years ago. Enjoy and have fun

Live in Escanaba Mi at the moment but moving to Green Bay Wi next week. And yeah no one ever told me the Jeep bug bites so hard, Ive been all over the place getting ideas and prices on stuff.

looking at bumpers, tube fenders, and gearing of course

You passed other jeeps with 35's and a 4 banger... must be runnin pretty good lol.. my last Apex has 35's with a 6 banger and you had to fight with it to stay at 60.. I'll give my 4 banger this though... it gets on the highway for what it is..

They must have been in reverse.
