here's what stinks - i dont know what i have right now. . . i have a 2004 Sahara with a D44 but not sure of gears. As far as i know they're stock but the guy i bought it from did have some work done already. . . .

I am running 31s now but want to get 33's in the spring - suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

ALSO - Do to lack of tools in my garage and lack of confidence in my ability, im going to pay a garage to put them in. How long (roughly) do you think it would take.

Thank you!!!

Your ratio is 3.73, all standard (non-Rubicon) TJs with the Dana 44 ship with that ratio. For 33" tires, you want 4.56 gearing which is optimal for that size tire, 4.0L engine, and 5-speed transmission.

Many shops charge around $250 rear and $300 for the front labor to install new R&P gears. Make sure to pay the shop to provide all parts, that way their warranty will cover everything and not just their labor.
