Re: Gearing down and Lockers on a CJ7

Nothing beats gears. Yes, you can do a T-case low range kit, but you still will have 3:31 for driving down the highway. If you have put any size tire on the jeep, it will hate hills and starting.

I have the same set-up, and I have just installed 3:73 with a low geared tranny. I have good offroad performance and the jeep will cruise down the highway at 70 if I was so inclined.
