    Gear ratio

    I have 2014 JKU rubicon with 35ís and 2 inch lift, I know want to get a higher lift someday. my family and I love the outdoors, we just went to Death Valley and it felt like my rig was having a hard time going up hill with high rpm. Please advise on what gear ratio should I get? I know that owning a Jeep never stops on mods. So when I get my rig regeared what else should I consider and Iíll be set for a while. Thank you guys!! 🤚🏼

    Gear ratio

    Welcome to WAL. If youíre stopping at 35s, 4.88 or 4.56. If bigger tires are in the near future, 4.88 or 5.13.

    If your Ruby has 4.10s and youíre not happy, then ax the 4.56 idea.

    I run 37s with Yukon 4.88s and master overhauls.... down the highway itís a bit aggressive, a tad. On the trails itís absolutely perfect. My tires overall measure 36.25 mounted and balanced at 28psi.

    I agree with Saharaunlmtd if youíre sure youíre at 4.10s and not happy. Jump to 4.88 or 5.13, keep in mind itís a give and take scenario

    Yukon vs. G2.... ummm I chose Yukon because i just felt a tad bit more confident in the Yukon brand. Iíve only seen spicer gears blow up

    Awesome read, I guess I was duped by the marketing. I do admit, I was pretty upset when I found out the master overhauls all use timken bearings

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
