    Yup and make sure to change those axle ratios at the same time.

    The reason I asked if they make them for the 3.21 is because I like my gears there. There's plenty of torque and I get the best gas mileage. That 3.6 is a great motor.

    I’m glad you are happy with those 3.21 axle ratios as most of the Jeep forums do not like them. If you go for larger tires or heavier armor in the future the effect of those axle ratios will be magnified. It’s going to increase costs somewhat but whenever lockers are installed is the absolute best time to consider axle ratios that match future plans and vice-versa.

    I have 35s on the jeep. Its not a vette but it has much more torque than my previous one did with the 3.8litre. Im happy with the 3.21ratio in the rear. Just hoping to find a locker for that ratio on a dana 44. So far no luck. :( forgot to mention it has front, rear smitty bumper with winch and a swing out tire carrier.
