I just picked up a set of JKUR axles to put under my LJ.
I'm wanting to regear to 5.13. Can I do that on the stock lockers?

What brand gears are you guys running and how are they holding up?

LJ shouldnt need the gearing as it has the 4.0 engine... Unless you plan on running large tires.

5.13's will put the engine out of its torque range as 4.0 is a low end monster (well compared to a 3.8)

Awww what the hell, do it!

I have 32's with 5.13's and I run just over 2000 rpm at 55 in OD, driveshaft however is just a hummin :)
lol

I was thinking I don't want to go 4.56 or 4.88 and not have enough gear so I figured 5.13 should be plenty. Main concern is r&p strength at that ratio.
