I told ya bro insurance on an ss is gonna be killer. It's considered a sports car and therefore dangerous so you pay more. The insurance on an srt jeep is the same as the regular jeeps.

Nice! You'll have to get used to the different shift points and cruise speeds but should be a good gain in accel from stop. Of all the mods I did to my Wrangler, the 4.88's were my favorite gain. With 35's it just didn't have the legs with the stock 3.73's, put me back to factory power ranges. With yours it'll be an improvement over stock, not just trying to get back to center. Are you running open gears or LS?

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

So if I have the QT2 and I'm 4x4 365 24/7 with 4lo does that narrow it down? Lol and any recommendation on what to go to. I wanna be able to be a red light warrior but still have plenty of power left to put down on the highway

You should have the 3.73 ratio. Aren't you wanting to go rwd tho? If you do id stay at 3.73 or go up to a 3.90.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I was thinking about RWD. But my dad and his friends were starting to out weigh my logic( wanting my jeep to do wheelies) with the whole I'll get a better launch from 4wd. So I'm just trying to go through different ideas of how to get more power to the ground and get great launch and maybe the occasional wheel spin. I'm conflicted. Lol
