Do u need to regear for 35's
 
When I purchase my new wheels I'm looking to upgrade to 35' tires and I'm not sure if regearing is need. Any help would be appreciated

What gears do u have

doclouie 12-22-2012 08:28 PM

Yes. 3.73 or 4.10 is not good enough for 35s unless you really like it to be a dog.

MTH 12-22-2012 08:29 PM

You never "have to" regear.

You just "should" regear in certain situations, or your jeep will feel like a dog, which may or may not drive you crazy.

Whether you should for 35s or not depends on the year of your jeep, your transmission (manual or auto), and your current gear ratio.

He has a X so I am going to go with yes.

You can go with a lighter 35" tire and wheel combo. But still I think you will want to regear.

I have 4:10's. livable but I started adding weight and can feel it.

jaybretzke 12-22-2012 08:34 PM

All depends on what year jeep you have. With a 2012 and 35's and 3.73 you will be fine unless you do a lot of off road.

I've got 4.10 and 35" and it is no dog

kjeeper10 12-22-2012 09:36 PM

I was fine. I just added a bumper. All these suspension components are pure beef.
Going to be adding a good amount of weight this week. I will be crying soon lol

jsmithtx 12-22-2012 09:39 PM

I have 4.10 and just installed Duratracs 33" with no problem. Not sure with 35".

Daltontj 12-22-2012 11:16 PM

It's a 07 x

Daltontj 12-22-2012 11:17 PM

And it's a manual

JEEPDON 12-23-2012 05:52 AM

With yous being an X with 2.72:1 Transfer Case; if you do technical stuff while off-roading; I would say Yes, gear as low as you can(high numerical value). Otherwise, go with sone 4.10's or 4.56's and your JEEP will be a different animal!:thumb:

Thats nonsense. 4.10's are just about perfect with 35's.

RUBI13 12-23-2012 07:03 AM

I have a 2013, Auto with 373's and 35's. I am swicthing to either 410 or 456's. 373's shift out of overdrive too much on the highway, especially on hilly terrain.

Seeuoffroad 12-23-2012 07:14 AM

2012 JKU Auto.... I have 35's and did 4.88 it's awesome!! Didn't notice a big difference driving around town. But out on the highway and in low gear crawling big difference. Gas mileage also improved.

krawzdogg 12-27-2012 12:23 PM

2013 JK Manual...35's with 3.73...only complaint is on the highway with hilly terrain...have to switch between 5th and 6th often, considering regearing, but my gas mileage has been around 17mpg around town.

Depends on the year (engine and tranny).

The OP has an 07 manual...so he probably should re-gear. But on a 2012 or 2013...especially with the 5 speed auto...you can "get by" with 3.73's, and 4.10's are near perfect unless you live in the hills.

Now that is double nonsense :rofl:......We have 2 Rubi's that came with 4.10's and now with 35" tires...... and yes you can drive it with 4.10 but it drives a whole lot better with 4.88's.:punk:

BeyondYourFrontDoor 12-27-2012 12:43 PM

09 Rubi with 35's.... 6 speed... definitely doggy... any type of moderate 4 wheeling requires 4-low now. I am in very hilly terrain...

Not unbearable... but close for me.

kjeeper10 12-27-2012 12:46 PM

Mmmm 4:88's

My programmer makes it tolerable. Def noticing more loss in power as weight is added.

Sasquatchewan 12-27-2012 02:40 PM

I turn of the overdrive it's cheeper than a regear lol

robdizzle 12-27-2012 03:59 PM

Mine does the same thing. So im thinking i should get a programmer first and see if that helps at all. I figured that way i could at least calibrate the spedo for my 35's.

Daltontj,

Personally I think that 4.10s would be prefect with the manual and 35s. It's a good all around gear. You should get MPGs on the street still and on the trail be able to drive over almost anything reasonable.

We carry a ton of options for gears for your JK. Also hit me up for the forums discount code for the best price around. Also free shipping on orders over $75.

Good luck with whatever gears you choose! Can't wait to hear how they work out for you.

Phil

Seeuoffroad 12-27-2012 06:01 PM

May as well get the programmer. You'll need that if you change gears anyway.

DALTONSJK 12-27-2012 07:44 PM

Hey... My last name is Dalton too.... I have 35s with 3:73s... And procal.... Works good for me

Seeuoffroad 12-27-2012 08:11 PM

Your right Dalton it works its not bad. But the 4.88 just flipping rock. Would have left my 3.73 but I installed ARB lockers and thought might as well do the R&P. I'm glad I did. Big difference.
