Re: How can I tell if my jeep regeared??
The gear reduction kits for Samurai T-cases give about double the reduction of a stocker.It's such a night and day differance that you
should be able to tell by just dropping into low range and driving it.You can tell exactly whats in there by putting the tranny in neutral,T-case
in low,hubs unlocked.Block the front tires (for safety)and raise the rear tires off the ground. Crawl underneath and mark the input and one
of the output driveshafts so you can count turns.A stock gearset will require 2.3 turns on the input to get 1 turn at the output.A GRS 1 type
gearset (4.16 reduction) will require 4 turns and a GRS 2 (4.89 reduction) will need 5 turns.
You can use the same basic technique for checking the diffs.Stock gears are 3.73 and the most common replacements are 4.60 and 5.13.
