Is anyone out there with a 6 speed 4 door running 35's with 3.73 gears? If so, please let me know what you think. (acceleration, highway, off road,ect.)
Thanks!:beer:

Warlock,
Do you have a 5 speed or auto tranny? I'm not sure about the heavier 4 door with a 6 speed. If I have to gear up I will, it'll just have to wait a bit. Unless I can sell it to the wife! Hmmm...

No its a six speed. Its a manual and the only difference i can see is that the acceleration is a bit off, and i cant really use sixth gear on the highway. Oh well..... I'm eventually going to regear when i put a new locker and maybe axle or something but until then im fine with it.

Off roading you have to give it a little bit more of the skinny pedal.

If your going to regear wait until you have enough money to get something else and get a good deal with the whole package, that is if your having someone professionaly install it.

i"ve got that setup, and it was dog-ish to begin with. i installed a hypertech max power programmer and it helped out alot. it's quicker thru the gears and 6th is now useable. i've heard good things about the airaid cool air intakes and its next on my list. those "BIG MONEY" mods will have to wait.:pissed:
