Good re-gearing for my '01 60th ann. 4.0 5 speed??
Alright guys, I was just curious on what gearing I should go with, a good brand name, with lockers preferred but I ehave an '01 60th Anniv. TJ with stock 3.73's in it 4 in. lift on 33's but I live in Branson, Mo. which has alot of hills & alot of constant braking & gear changing... which makes me want to lower my gears so then I can drive more staying in one gear... I have been reading up on your site & I'm rebuilding my Jeep motor right now & I was thinking since I was getting this done, I should change out the gears since it's already getting worked on... I read up on this thread: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/4-56...-176271-2.html
that 4.56 gears is about right for 33's & 4.88s on 35's but I would really like to get something that will work ok for 33's but I would really like to jump up to 35's eventually if I can make it clear 35's... I don't drive my Jeep on the highway much EVER but I just like to drive it sometimes & I just want something to make it kinda easier to drive & not really have to downshift as frequently... Any reccomendations for a good set-up??? Thanks alot AGAIN guys!! :D
