4.88 gears and 33" tires
 
I just got my 4.88 gears in my JK. :punk:

JK X, 2 door, 6 speed, 33" ProComps, 2" lift, Hypertech, air intake, exhaust.

It runs better than new! 70mph @ 2900 rpm , take off in 2nd gear, never shift down for hills or to pass :D

Congrats, deeper gears are great mod with larger tires.


And WELCOME to the forum. What part of KS you from?

Welcome, I have always wondered about 4.88's and 33's.

You'll get better fuel economy with small 35's and 4.88's --- but I bet your crawl is unbelievable right now.
Don't wheelie too often; it drives the ladies wild.
