2 Door with 35's

Who has a 2 door, 3.73 gears, 35's, and a stick shift? Im looking into running 35's and have tried researching but it seems like there is a huge difference in a 2 door from a 4 door and an auto from a manual. I understand that with a manual I can shift to compensate, but how big of a difference does it make? How is it on the interstate, in town, and off road?

We've got a 2dr w/37's, 4.10s and 6spd. We do have a Flashpaq w/93 octane tune but it does surprisingly well with the stock gears. The Flashpaq made a noticeable difference in acceleration and gas mileage.

I am running a 2 door with 35's, 6spd, 4.10's but I am not using any programmers (hated the last one I tried. Actually mad it worse) Milage is about 15.5MPG highway. I use regular gas.

Notice in shifting: City and Offroad I noticed no difference on when I have to shift. Highway I noticed 6th gear was weaker, but it depeneds if what the speed limit is and wether or not you are going up hil on a highway.

my .02: I would not recommend 35's with 3.73 gears. I would suggest 33's.

We don't use 6th gear at all right now, it won't get used again until the 5.13's go in.

2 Door Auto here. I should have them on this week. Awaiting Procomp 98's. I will be running BFG KM2 35's. I will post pics when I am done. I have a good feel for the stock setup now that I finally broke 2000 on the odometer.

forgot to add. Once I changed from my Nitto Mud grapplers to Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar I have since been able to use 6th gear. Don't ask my why but I could not use 6th gear with the Nitto's. They felt like they gave me more resistance.

I run 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers on my 2dr 6 speed and ran the stock 3.21 gears for almost a year. Used 6th gear on flat hwys, but had to downshift to 5th and sometimes 4th when going up hills.

I've got a 2dr, 6spd, with 4.10's and 35's. I dont have any problems with using 6th or being sluggish. Of course I am in Florida, so it's pretty flat here. But with 3.73's I agree with bodybrdng I'd probably run 33's.

I am running this exact set-up. The shift points are great, but 6th is not needed until you get above 75mph. MPG sucks, but I guess you knew that. I had 33s for a while, and I like the way the jeep performs better with 35s. It is great in town, on the dirt and on the freeway. I recalibrated the tire size with the Hypertech programmer. I say go for it, you will love it!

the mud grapplers are a much heavier tire thats my guess

I've got 35s, 3.23gears, and a 6 speed...cold air intake and Gibson exhaust...I think it works just as good as my Unlimited with stock Rubicon tires and wheels. No probelms so far, but 6th gear is pretty much only for downhills. It really seems fine...I won't swap gears until I upgrade the axles.

A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, honorably discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Definitely be careful with the CAI when off-roading in mud and water areas. I speak from experience. Now I run a snorkel

I have a 2dr, 35's, 6spd with 3.73 gears. I have been running this setup over a year. It sucked at first. Then I added the superchips and it really helped things out.

I think 4.88's would be much better but don't have the funds to do that. Don't get the 33's. You will be kicking yourself later.

The jeep had 33's on it when I got it. I have had the itch to put 35's on it for a while now but have been waiting until I ran the 33's down. Also, I have always wondered about regearing. As you can see from the thread...there are alot of mixed feelings on what to do.

Looks like the majority say it's liveable, if not ideal...It's one I'm going to be doing for a good long while until I can afford the gear swap.

Justin,
come on out and we can bolt my 35" grapplers on and you can take it for a drive and see what you think
I need to rotate my tires anyway

The big thing is a lot of the guys saying its liveable are Rubis with 4.10s in the axles and 4:1 t-case

you'll eventually want to do the gears anyway, but you can "test drive" it and see if it's liveable for you
we'll probably have to put my spacers on too since I'm using stock rims, but thats not a big deal

35s?

I have an 09 X 2dr auto with 102000 miles with 3.73 gears, it has a rough country 2.5 inch lift on it. Am I okay to run 35s? the 35s I want come out to 62 lbs. I don't plan on re gearing, it is my DD but I do go off roading from time to time.

I guess everyone has their own idea of what's livable. I have the same engine as you with an auto. Mine came with 4.10's. I'm now running 4.88's on 33" tires. I'd like to go to 35's, but don't really want to lose any of what I gained. It drives awesome with the 4.88's on 33's. Now 3.73's with 35's? I wouldn't consider it for a second, but I know there are others that will tell you it's ok. I suppose it depends partly on the terrain where you live too. I live where there are lots of mountains with steep grades.
