I use the MTRs- they are amazing off road and C rated, so it is hard to go away from them.

Yeah, the 3.6 isn't exactly a powerful motor as it sits in the JK. The again, they sell the hell out of Wranglers so what does Chrysler care.

So 4.10 to 4.56 is not very noticeable, huh? It is...

That seems to be pretty common. Ideally, you should get the parts from the same shop so they can work with the manufacturer in case something happens...aftermarket gears do break more often than...

You're right- the engine can rev pretty high for ten minutes without problems. A lot of guys here do use 4.88s...I just need to go drive one to see how it truly feels at 75 mph. Maybe High Country...

I was leaning towards 4.56 because I don't think 4.88 will help me any during crawling. With a Rubicon T-case ratio, my crawling is relatively unchanged and excellent even with 4.10s in 4Lo....it is...

I almost always stay in 3rd with a loaded or unloaded Jeep but with a passenger and gear, it will pop into screaming second if I try to stay at 65. I back off and get it back to 3rd and resume. ...

I think Northridge is an hour north of me but they have only been here maybe a year. I don't know how good/experienced their techs are. Not sure I want to go back and forth that far either- in case...

terrabit, your words in post #95 has no place on Jeep or gun forums. ;)

So speaking of regears, there is this shop here who may have hit the max cost I have heard of - $2,400 OTD. Okay, great...

Good. Lock it. Our resident regear expert is not desperately trying to dig out of his hole but it is simply too deep and his desperate attempts to claw out are yielding nothing anyway.

This is quite hilarious, though not as hilarious as 4.10s screaming up Vail Pass in 2nd gear because it can barely hold 60 mph in 3rd. :pullinghair:

The JK chart seems to show a pretty flat line between 1800-3600 with an increase after that. 4.10s are simply adequate with 4.56s being a much better choice, especially on uneven terrain.

Oh definitely. Nobody I called or talked to mentioned 4.10. I think since this is Colorado, a few recommended 4.88 but most said 4.56. Not one shop said 4.10 and my 4.10 isn't fun to drive with...

Change my caster by 5 degrees? That sounds too crazy...I would not even go to 5 degrees with my aftermarket driveshaft and stock axle.

Will keep these on the list, though I still can't get past the weight. Hearing that BFG may come out with a KM3 so will hold of a bit before switching.

Vader, 4.10 will probably be fine in Jersey but it can be seriously weak and annoying here in Colorado. Maybe drive a modded JK with 4.56s/35s and a stock Rubicon with 4.10s/35s, and then decide. ...

If they have improved the sidewall strength enough, I'd certainly consider it. We don't have enough C-rated MT options out there.

Do they conform well at 12 psi? It does not seem like it would with that thick/heavy carcass and sidewall? I stay away due to the E rating and the ~79 lbs weight (35x12.5x1s) but if I had a truck I...
