Tire size issues Issues

I have a 92 cherokee and I'm planning ot put a 4.5 rubicon lift on it and i want to go with a tire around 33 inches. With the rear end will there be any issues as far as gear ratio that will have to be taken into account.

Re: Tire size issues Issues

auto or 5spd? I've got a 5 spd and with 31's and 3.07's there's a noticeable difference from stock. Not a whole lot of getup and 5th is basically worthless unless I'm doing 70.
I've also assumed you've got the 4 liter.

Re: Tire size issues Issues

You need to find out what gear ratio you are running now. You are going to loose power. There is a gear ratio chart on 4wheelparts.com in the tires. This will give you an idea of what ratio you will want to be at.

Give you VIN # to a dealer and they can tell you what ratio you have, at least what it was stock.
