o4 jeep wrangler 4.0 5 speed.

I have a 04 jeep wrangler X. I need to regear and have seen several post on here about this but still need a little more info. I have 33 12.5 15s. not 100% on what gears are in the jeep since i bought it with the 33s on it. What would be the best for this jeep. It is a DD and i do alot of HWY as well. Like many other post i have read 5th gear sucks on the HWY constantly down shifting even on the smallest grades. I will be regearing in mid Dec, as well as adding new 33s. I have also installed Banks catbac, and Airraid intake(didnt see much improvement.) I was also considering the Hypertech Power Programer. Would this be a wast on money. I now its the gears just not sure on which ones to put in. As i said its a DD and HWY use i dont get off road daily.

Welcome to WF.

What engine do you have? I'm guessing it's the 4.0? If so you'll be happy with 4.56 gears with 33 inch tires.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
