Had the Jeep re-geared yesterday to 4.88's....wow, back to driving like the day I drove off the lot, soooo much nicer now. Doesn't feel heavy and was in 8th gear for the 77 mile trip home from the shop...mpg's were up on the display in a range I hadn't seen in a bit...we will see how much better after a full tank. Super Happy

What’s the gain in mpg? I’m curious if the re-gear is worth the cost.

does it interfere with your backup sensors?
Slightly, but I don’t mind. I could raise it up, but I prefer the greater visibility out of the back window.
