You basically have 3 choices:

1) Go back to a 30" or 31" tire.
2) Regear to 4.88
3) Swap in a 4.0L or bigger engine

Rolling Eyes I think I am going to change the gear to the 488 but do I need to put the same gear in the front or do I leave it alone? thanks for the help.

The gears must match, front and rear!
