Yah, ya might be able to get away with what's in there now. If you have a 5spd and 3.73's, there'd be no sense in regearing for 32's. The cost involved to go up to 4.10's would prolly outwiegh the benefits. But again, all depends on what ya got now.

What they said. Post up what you have now. If you've got 3.07's you'll have to change the carrier to go any higher than 3.55's. Plus if you've got a D35 and you like using the skinny pedal hard offroad, it might not be worth dropping that kind of cash into it.

We have 32's on the TJ with a 5 speed, D44 and 3.73's and the combo works well.

Ok, look on the differential case from the rear, there should be a tag on the left-hand side that says your gear ratio...

most likely it will be 3.07s. I'm running 33s, I'm not too concerned with power right now, just because I want to swap the rear end, then I'll regear.

If you're set on regearing, you could move to 3.73:1 thumbs but if you plan on wheeling, most regear to 4.56s

But there's something about the carrier that needs to be changed... you can read that here

Just sit tight man, for your application, that's a lot of dough to throw, then go to a D44...

Unless your planing any major upgrades....like heavier axles, you wont see much bang for your buck just by regearing for 32" tires with an auto tranny. Automatics are a lot more forgiving to slight tire size changes than manuals are.

If it was a 5 speed, then 4.10s would be a good start on and off road, especially if stock it was 3.07.

With the 3 speed Im thinking that most of those came with 3.73's on the I6 and 4.10's on the 4banger.

same combo on mine, mine is geared to 3.73. you can look on your front differential cover there should be a tab there at about the 10 o'clock position that will tell you what gears you have. i wouldnt bother regearing unless you plan on moving to something bigger. than 4.10's would be nice, its a bit sluggish with 3.73 but not 1000 dollars worth sluggish to regear Wink

3.73's an 32's with the 4.0L will do really nice

x2 just hold tight and deal with the current gearing until you go for the d44...the money spent to gear twice could be used sooo much better!

my fiance's jeep has the 3sp auto, 2.5l, and 3.73 gears. we bumped her tires to 31" and she has no problems keeping up with me on the highway doing 80! she told me the other day that she was ready to lift it a little higher now (did i mention she rocks!) and thinks she could do 32" tires without killing the power totally on-road. but we both think 33" with that combo would be pushing it. that said, i think you'll be fine with your 32" tires...and even 33" is liveable until you get around to regearing. there's just so much involved in gearing...gear ratio decisions, locker decisions, and even finding a place to do it. do you want to go with a buddy that does it cheaper but with no warranty or somewhere that covers it for a higher cost? things you have to weigh out...but again you only want to have to do once. okay, i'll take another breath and give this one a rest. good luck and let us know what you go with.
