Hi guys. I'm talking to a guy about trading a car I have for a 98 wrangler TJ. My question is this, he has put 35" tires on it and re-geared to 4:88. I was looking for something I could daily drive if I chose to. Would I be ok with this set up? It has a 6 cyl, 5 speed.Thanks, Troy

This is great. Most people have the stock gearing, but this is good.

Sounds like the correct gearing for 35,s 4.0 6cyl 5 speed.Im running 35,s with 4.11,s and probably wont be using 5th gear until I regear to 4.88....
