    A JK and a JL have different transmissions. Power is completely different.

    Donít disagree but IMO the Jk doesnít NEED 5.13 either . I drove it stock, with 33s, and 35s on 4.1 and then with 4.88 with both 35s and 37s and the 37s feel very close to stock performance at this ratio

    I debated this very thing on my JK when I upgraded my axles. Iíve got a few friends running 5.13ís and a few running 4.88ís and itís so close Iím not sure I could tell the difference but ultimately I chose the 5.13ís because I wanted a bit more for crawling.

    I love my 5.13s on and off road, however with the Rubi transfer case, they're almost too low sometimes. I need a Rubicrawler now. 😎

    I noticed that too. One of the first big mods I did on my sport was a Rubicon transfer case. After the axle upgrades and gears I went back to a sport transfer case because of that very thing.

    Yeah. I'd never give up the Rubi case... The addition of the Rubicrawler gives you the best of both worlds.

    VIDEO : OP ED - Are 5.13 Gears Needed with 37 Inch Tires on a JL Wrangler... and MORE

    So I am kinda in the same boat, level kit with stt pro 33ís...measure 32.75. On the fence on 4.1 or 4.56. Little city driving here in Utah frequent trips to wendover with mild hills and always headwind making 5th obsolete. But my question is, in Utah whatís a good place to get it done, I really like jack it but they quoted me $2600 to go from 3.73 to 4.10

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.
