I think it has a slight lift of 1.5 or 2 inches the way it sits with the Rubicon wheels and 245 tires. I'll probably eventually do a winch, but that will be it.

Well, except for maybe an air locker up front. I still need to see if it has a limited slip rear and I think it has 3:73 gears, but need to find that out as well........

I was all set to get new bumpers for the Powerwagon, that will have to wait a while now.......

All my vehicles are red / dark red... I'm always asked why I only have red vehicles...
My motorcycle's red, my boat's red, my dump trailer is red, but the John Deere is GREEN

Well, jacked the rear up and it's a one wheel wonder. I guess that's a good excuse for air lockers front and rear. Still don't know the gear ratio, no tag on the pumpkin.

Yeah looks like a small lift to me. Any coil spacers?

If its an open dif, jack one tire up and spin it 2 revolutions. However many times the driveshaft spins is your gearing.

Yeah, looks like spacers on the top of the springs, I think it is a leveling kit with 1" in the rear and 2" up front. I could fit 33's on it no no problem, but I really like how it looks now and will leave it that way.

Do you have to divide the number of driveshaft spins by 2 (for the tire revolutions) to get the gear ratio?

I have never heard of that before. It will either be 3:23 or 3:73 as that is all they did for the sport. I hope it's 3:73's.

So far, but I do admit I think about selling it every time I fill it up... I haven't been giving it a proper life - too much pavement and too few trails. Almost feel bad for it. I have become a poser. It makes me sad... :doh:

Sorry for the tangent OP.

No. If it has a locker or limited slip it is one spin, if it is open diff it will take two spins.

Thanks for the clarification. I actually was able to put my VIN in and get the build sheet at the Jeep website. It has 3:73 gears as an add on option. I am a happy camper, that is so awesome!! This Jeep is exactly what I wanted, it's perfect. Glad I've been waiting to find the right one.

FYI, they had the brake-lock traction control system, and while it's certainly not a locker, you'd be surprised what it'll do stock with that system alone.

Put it in 4lo, and get a wheel up and spinning, and the computer applies brake force to just that spinning wheel, the diff routes power to the other tire, and you're moving. It takes a few seconds, and some extra throttle to really work, but it does in fact work.

I was not aware of the BLD and just read up on it, very cool! Thanks for the information, I really appreciate it. I'm thinking for now I'm going to do a Limited Slip rear and leave the front alone. Do a winch and aftermarket bumper and that will be it. I really want new bumpers for the Powerwagon, so less will have to go towards the Jeep.
