    What happens if I dont regear my sport with 3.21 to something higher.

    I am running 35x12.50 nitto trails.

    There aren't any really bad side effects besides the fact that your jeep is really sluggish and you can't really use 6th gear if you have a manual, I'm running 3.21 gears with 35" Toyos and I can't wait to regear.

    I have been running 35s and 3.21 for about 7 months now and it's bearable. Around town is not too bad but my biggest problem is highway driving and hills. The jeep will be a slug but as far as cons it's just annoying sometimes.

    I run mine with overdrive off most of the time unless I'm on a downhill stretch. I have 3.73 gears and the powerhouse 3.8 liter.. Keeping overdrive off keeps it from hunting gears and overheating transmission.

    affects mileage too?

    I'm concerned to on acceleration at times. cant seem to get the boost when overtaking some cars.

    Quadratec puts out a gear ratio to tire size chart that can help. A simple google search can help you find it.

    Mileage and acceleration will suffer as your engine is working harder.

    Your Jeep will end up looking like something Starwood Motors puts out.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
