Need to know what engine and trans you have?

4.0l 5speed and current diff gears are 3.07

4.56 for 33's

So what will that do to my fuel use age if I run 29's on the highway

Kill it. You regear to match a certain tire size.. Running larger or smaller tires then your gearing is ment for will have negative effects on gas millage and overall performance. In the case of smaller tires with gearing ment for 33's you will be running at a very very high rpm for the speed your going

That's y I need gears in the middle to suit these needs because ATM I'm doin 60 mph and sitting on 1700 rpm I just want to bump the rpm up a bit so I'm not goin down gears at a hill to keep goin up the hill
