I drive 24K miles every year, mostly pulling a trailer in the mountains. With 33s and 4.10s. I wish I had 3.73. All too often I will be on a long steady downhill wishing I had one more gear.... or 3.73s That is real world experience, anyone else here put 24K miles on every year, towing a 2000 pound trailer for most of those miles? ... in the mountains?6-speed manual NSG370
33's - 4.10 more street, 4.56 more trail or mountainous/hilly highway
I should get to drive mine for the first time today.All the math people use kills me ...and I have seen some real keyboard battles over gearing and octane ......I know it satisfies the mind ...but you can pretty much ask experienced owners like Jerry Bransford , Rob or Chris and end up fine .
Tire sizes vary, they actually become smaller every time you drive the Jeep , and if you get in the ball park you will be fine .
Most folks want to figure it all out ...it's when you first drive the regeared Jeep that you really smile .
That's my set up..it's great .i think I've finally found the answer to a question I have been struggling with. I have an 04 tj 5spd. just regeared to 4.56 in preparation to lift and bigger tires. If I am reading and understanding right. 33' tires would be perfect for daily driving and weekend trail riding.
