    If you have 4.1 (Rubi) you shouldn't need to regear. Whatcha got for a rig?

    I think you'll be just fine for 35's. May as well give it a shot and try it out.

    As others have said, try it out. You can always change the gearing after the fact. The 8spd is an incredible transmission, so itís worth a shot!

    I have a Sport. I went 35's and lost 8th gear with the 3.45's. I regeared to 4.56 and it is as good or better than stock. I have 7th and 8th gear back and gas mileage is around 22mpg+

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.
