I don't care about mileage, I don't go to an office and I work from home when I'm not on the road in my company car...
Me either but Id prefer to keep the stock ratio to keep the engine in it's powerband. I haven't had a need to regear my JL. 37's don't seem to affect it's performance.I don't care about mileage, I don't go to an office and I work from home when I'm not on the road in my company car...
This debate circles around many forums. 5.13 or 4.88 with 37's. Weight of tire seems to be a big reason for the 5.13 or in the future increase to 38's or larger. Auto vs. manual is another. I'm in Fl and will do 5.13 because I may go to 38 next. I thought I was going to do 35's and changed my mind last minute to 37's. Glad I didn't do 35's. Mine is not a daily driver, maybe 400 miles a month just for fun. I don't want to do this twice, that's another reason I will do 5.13.I would go 5.13 is gas mileage is no issue (and you wheel). Otherwise, 4.88 is the place to be when running 37s. I can only speak from a 6-spd POV though.
I have yet to hear someone who did 5.13 wish they did 4.88 instead. I'm still waiting for a shop I feel comfortable with doing it.I'll probably move to 38's also... I'm not trying to get back to the stock feel, since I felt it was under geared in OD with 33's... I think I'm going to do the 5.13's and report back so the info is out there... hopefully this coming week or next if the shop can get me in...
Same here in flat Texas. Drove me crazy. Was gonna regear, but decided to step back down in tire size instead. Stays in 8th better now. 285/75 Ridge Grapplers. Still good for the trails this Jeep will see.hi all,
I have a Mopar lifted Rubicon with 35x12.5x20 KO2 and mine keeps trying to go to 7th in Florida (which is mostly flat) just going up a highway bypass. I'm a bit perplexed and bothered that the Rubicon advertises that it can fit 35 and it cant handle it and I have to rehear? There should be enough from factory and these 8 speed transmissions should be able to be programmed to not do so.
Any tricks using the Taser Mini that anyone knows?
