2018 JLU Manual

Back into a Jeep! With the 33's the manual transmission is useless after 4th gear, going to need a re-gear? 4.10? 4.56?

Zero Power, especially going up hills. Cruising at 60 mph in 3rd is where i'm at most of the time.

80 mph = 2100rpm in 6th

I just drove to my cabin 250 miles and didn't get to stay in 5-6th longer than 2 miles.

Yes, I have the same challenge in my ‘18 JLU Sport manual with 35’s. I’m getting used to it on the roads, but when I take her off road the lack of power in low gears is tricky. I definitely want to regear...haven’t decided what to yet as I can’t afford it any time soon.
Many talk about going a bit higher on the regearing for future upgraded tires so you’d only need to do it once.

Double overdrive on the 6 speed was a poor choice by Chrysler.
