Re: How do I get better low end performance?

well I don't know but I'm pretty sure the aftermarket doesn't make different gearing for a ford explorer or escape.

In english, it should make finding gears easier.

I think it's a factory option so you might be able to get some through mopar.

Re: How do I get better low end performance?

The engine means nothing when it comes to gears.

You just need to call up a place that sells gears for ex, summit racing.com, and tell them what you have and what you want. They will set you up right.

The only thing that matters when you buy gears is the axle. I am not sure what the front is called but the rear is a chry 8.25 axle (but its different from the 8.25 in a regular cherokee.

Re: How do I get better low end performance?

Yes you need to change front and rear, they cannot be different from eachother.

Just go to (ouch this hurts to say) Jeepsunlimited and ask in the WK section where to get 4:10 gears for a WK. There are more off roaders on there that can help.

Re: How do I get better low end performance?

I think with the 410 gears your car won't roll as much on it's own.

Re: How do I get better low end performance?

You will notice a 110% different by going to a lower gear. The higher the number the lower the gear ratio.

For instance my Xj had 3:55 gears stock with the 4.0 6 cyl and auto tranny. When i put 35" tires on it i had 4:56 gears installed to get my power back, but i should have gone lower to 4:88s to get more torque.

For you, id say 4:10s will be perfect for stock or larger tire and wheel combos and you will notice alot more torque. You will kit the gas from a stop (with stock size tires) and you will feel like it wants to launch off the line.

With stock tires and 4:10s, you can put the jeep in drive and get out and walk beside it up a slight up hill.

IDK about the front but I'm pretty sure you're gonna have to drop the rear axel out from underneath your car.

You, Nothing. A trained professional should be the only person to do gears. It is super duper sensitive.

Thats why i said it will cost some coin to get it done.

Ask dylan to see if he can get you info on a set of 4:10 gears for the front and rear of your jeep and installation kits. Prolly going to cost about $500 ish total for parts. Then find a shop that will give you a reasonable rate to change the gears. Reasonable is between $500 to $700 PER AXLE. CALL AROUND.

I had my gears in the rear axle setup by a friend that claimed to know what he was doing. a few months later i had to spend $1000 locally to have the entire rear axle rebuilt because he screwed them up and the gears were groaning because they were 100% installed wrong. Had to buy all new gears and get them put in.

Once installed you need to be nice and easy on the truck for 500 miles. then change out the fluids. Thats the break in time.
