Different but related question. I have been running 4.11's and 33's for a decade with the NV3500 5-speed manual. It worked fine, the Jeep was a little slow off the line in High range.

Now I want...

YES do the SYE. You will then need two driveshafts. They are custom because the NV231 and NV241 are different lengths, and standard Rubicon shafts won't fit. If you plan to run more than 2" of...

The answer to that is NO. The high flow pump drags more on the serpentine belt, which wastes power. The higher pressure makes it more likely you will blow a radiator or hose or gasket.

I had 31's on a 1997 2.4L TJ SE with 4.11 gears, it was tolerable. For 33's you want to go to 4.56's or 4.88's. The 4.56's would return you to stock gearing and offer the best gas mileage. The...

The 2003 and 2004 Rubicon EMICs (Electro-Mechanical Instrument Cluster) are actually calibrated for 33" diameter tires. Early Chrysler Rubicon test mules actually used this tire size. A very late...

Seriously, DON'T DO THIS. If you had a stock LJ it would be barely controllable (3500lb tow limit). If you had a stock TJ you would have a 2000lb tow limit, but I would personally degrade the tow...

With a stock Rubicon locker and moderate driving skill, 33's last forever, 37's break pretty quick, and 35's are somewhere in between.
