Anybody running 5.13s with 35s and auto? I appreciate everyone’s feedback but responses with 37s, or 35s and 4.10s won’t help me. I currently run 35s and 4.10s and will definitely regear to 4.88 or 5.13. I want to go 5.13 but would appreciate any feedback from those that have 35s and auto with 4.88 or 5.13. Calculators show 5.13 will be around 2700 rom at 80 and I can live with that since most of my driving is below 70 mph. Anyone with 4.88 and 35s and auto wish they went 5.13 or with 5.13 wish they went 4.88? Thanks in advance!

do you have the 2.0T or the V6?

I'm no expert but I've seen plenty of post on here regarding this and most say there is no need to regear the JLUR with 35's ....Jeep expert at my local dealer said there is no need for it especially with the 2.0T for what ever that is worth

I have the V6. Thanks for the reply. I see those comments of not needing to regear a lot too. I’m hoping someone who has done a regear can reply and share their thoughts on 4.88 vs 5.13. I see a lot of comments with 37s but not with 35s. I’m guessing because most with 35s don’t do it but hoping someone who has will chime in.

Do you intend on lifting and moving up larger than 35s? I only ask because I would rather pay to regear once. For me personally, I haven't regeared yet as I plan to move along in the build away from 35s. Now if you're dead set on keeping 35s and those are the only choices you will consider, than I would personally go 4.88s. Mainly because I travel long distances if/when it leaves the garage. But you have used the calculator, pick whatever fits your needs not others. I had multiple people and vendors in the past insist I go 4.10's on a different (non jeep) build against my math. Long story short, I regeared a second time to a gear set that I was originally dead set on using.

4.56 will give you your stock performance back. 4.88s will give you a little extra low end over the stock 4.10s. 5.13s are going to be great on the trail and crawling rocks but thirsty and tiresome on the highway. If you are planning on moving up to 38-40s then the 5.13s would be a good choice.

I'm guessing what you need here is a few more people to chime in with 0 first-hand experience with the combination you are asking about.:CWL:

4.56 or 4.88 would be good for 35s. 4.88 will cover you if you go 37s in the future. People who say no need to regear don't know what they talking about. It's not chump change to regear and you get nothing cosmetic, only performance. Perhaps you also call a couple offroad shops including the guys at Northridge4x4 and call some of the manufactures like Revolution Gear or Yukon.

I run 5.13s with 3.6/auto/37s.

I appreciate everyone responding but true I can’t seem to get feedback from people with experience with this setup. Since 90% of my on-road driving is around town I’m going with 5.13. I will report back after I get some miles on them.

it is lifted now with Dynatrac lift. I’m not going higher and I’m sticking with 35s. I don’t hit the highway much and I would rather err on the side that benefits off road vs highway so I’m leaning to 5.13.

Since you spend very little time on the highway, then you will like them and you can move up a tire size with no problem if you want. The 5.13s will be great in town and on the trail. I used to run 4.30s with 34" tires years ago, it was a great all around combo. But If I did that gain, I would probably do 4.56s.

If you run 35s then I actually found a response from someone who runs what I’m asking about. Sounds like you are happy with 4.88. Do you ever find yourself thinking well maybe I could have gone to 5.13? I realize that is personal preference and it really depends on how you use your Jeep but curious on your thoughts. Thanks.

You are saying what I want to hear. I’ll let you guys know in a few weeks after I get them in and get some miles on them. Thanks

I’d love to hear your impressions when your swap is done. I’m contemplating the same swap.

I currently have 4.88 on 35's. with the V6. I am very happy with the performance on and offroad. I do see 8th gear all the time. In town driving I average about 13MPG's. She will def get up and go. I have not had any problems on the trails at all. Lots of torque and climbed right up hells gate in moab without breaking a sweat. Highway mpgs is about 15 to 16 at 65 to 70mph. Anything over that an mpgs begins to tank. at 70mph I set at about 2000 rpms. Hope this helps a bit.
