    what engine do you have?

    reason I ask is because some 1st 4 cylinders come with 4.56 on the stock tires so if yours is similar maybe even the 5.19's

    4.88 sounds pretty good to me with the 35's and the V6. If you wheel a lot and the highway drivings low id go 5.19 but if your doing not so much off-road and more city/freeway 4.88

    NP man, regearing is a wonderful thing to do that people almost always look past as far as performance both power and MPG wise!

    Dude I commute from Ft. Irwin, CA to Gilbert, AZ (7 hour drive). Don't want to do the bigger tire things just yet. I can still get busy in the desert with 4.10's.

    I bit the bullet and had someone else do it. It's not THAT hard, just more a test of patients. Glad now I bit the bullet cause the place put the wrong gears in, and I'm not getting charged to have anything swapped back to normal, and I can spend time doing other things with my free time.

    I got nitro gears in mine. 4.88 as well. I ordered a built diff from eastcoastgearsupply and did the swap my self, it came with a 5 year warranty. Good guys to deal with. Chase knows his gears.
