Changing final drive ratio on a 2012 JGC 5.7L

The final drive is quite a tall gear has anyone geared it down? My GC is RWD. Also what rear end would I have to buy gears for?

Re: Changing final drive ratio on a 2012 JGC 5.7L

The WK2 has so called metric gears. Doesn't seem to be anyone making them. Every once in a while folks try to get a group buy together but it never seems to pan out.

The 5.7 axle ratio is 3.47. The SRT8 has a 3.7 ratio and ELSD. You could think about swapping entire axle assemblies. Dunno of anyone thats done it.

The V6 has a 3.07 ratio. In 2014 there were some changes.
