    What gears do you have? Standard 3.21 or optional 3.73?

    Welcome @Kenny672 . What @Blue Baby Sound said.
    Your lift has nothing to do with your gearing. It's your tire size.
    I'm running 35s with 3,73s. But I also recalibrated my tranny with a Flashcal Superchip. Response is awesome...mpgs also.

    Thanks!
    I’m not sure what gears are in it.
    Is there a label plate somewhere to reference?

    Thanks for the info!
    It does have 3.73 gears in it.
    So looks like I’ll get the tires and recalibrate with a chip.

    That's sittin on 35s. Recalibrated. Highway mpgs. And, believe it or not. I've hit 20 plus with a tail wind. True story. So it is possible with 3.73s.

    I guess many people have different needs. Ive driven a JKU with TF 4 inch lift with 37's and stock 3.73 gears and it drove absolutely fine. Plenty of pull off the line, passing acceleration, etc.

    Everybody's butt meter is a bit different but as long as they are content with the response is all that matters. But I would definitely regear for 37s to regain the mpg and performance response off-road where it counts.
