Hi,

Did some searches and still am not sure what I want to do. I have a 89 XJ with an auto tranny. It was lifted, I would guess 3" or there abouts. It has 31X10.5 tires. I am looking at this as a DD and the gearing is way too tall for me. I drive over a mountain road to work and it is to lugging the engine. I assume it has the stock 3.55 gearing. I am thinking of regearing to 4.11. Thought of just going back to the stock tires, but thought it would not look too good. Anyone that has or knows someone with the same set up that could offer some advice. I do not plan on doing any rock crawling just some light off-roading while hunting.

Thanks

I put a 3" lift on my 97 and left the stock tires on there...doesn't look much different.

Thanks for the reply.

Are your stock tires 225 75r15's ? I would like to keep the after-market rims, they are 15 X 8. Not sure if this is the same size as the stock rim. In either case I should be able to match the stock tire hight.
