I have the sport width PR44 and hav no regrets, but I think it’s up to you. I have aftermarket wheels with less backspacing then stock, so I didn’t need a wider axle.
I did have to wait for the axle install so I could measure for the driveshaft length. That took time and was a pain...
Regearing was the best upgrade I did. I have 35”s now and the 4.56s are great.
but if I did it over I’d go 4.88!
I’ll be honest, I wheel with some Rubicon JLs (stock) and JKURs and I have no trouble controlling my low speed crawling. I’d like the 4:1 tcase, but I’d rather swap my rear...
^^^ this helped my rear end squirm after 3” of lift. My squirm was not wandering (I had that previously) and the squirm was more noticeable under acceleration. I raised the roll center of my rear track bar using a synergy bracket and the squirm was gone.
i have 4.56s and had 33” tires for a year, not super far off from 4.88 and 32“. I thought the 3.56 gears were awesome with 33”s. you’ll have slightly higher revs on the hiway than my set up, but no problems otherwise. I also wheeled my Jeep hard with the 33“ & 4.56 set up.
46,000 miles later, my...
I had this too, a sticker plus a few miles on the Jeep when I picked it up 2+ years ago. I ordered mine. I asked a similar question on a post years ago.
I now have 43,000+ miles with no issues.
I have 4.56s and 35” tires with my 6 speed. To be honest if I did it over I’d go 4.88s with the 35s, and would certainly go 4.88 or higher for 37s.
I had my 4.56s for a year with smaller 33”s and thought that combo was fantastic. Great gearing on the highway, reduced the wide spacing between...
Many of us manual gearbox users are interested in the outcomes. We are grateful for your willingness to share your experiences with CF, keep us posted! I must say, it looks like customer service is really good.
I’ll wait for the revised centerforce clutch and replace the stock with that eventually. I’m aware of some of the issues, but trust them to work out the kinks.
I have a ‘19 with 43k miles and no problems to date (passed initial recall with the clutch dump test). I do my own work, and have a...
