How many are running the 4.10/4.11 gears? Any noticeable difference compared to the 3.73?

I'm still weighing the upgrade. My Jeep just feels like a dog going up hill and hardly any "get go" from a stop.

Its a steep price at $2.5k, I'm trying to figure out how to get it back on par with that low end torque performance.

Thanks!

Try running with the "Tow Haul" button pressed, it keeps the trans in one lower gear except the first gear. I call it "performance mode"
Yes it will lower gas mileage but 411 gears will also. Cost is very friendly at $0. Don't know what engine you have - add it to your signature.

Like me, you are currently running a 3.43 gear ratio. Swapping to a 4.11's will bring you back to the original 3.73 ratio and should restore bottom end with those tires. Won't be cheap.

No it's not cheap :(. Im going to do my seats first and then worry about the gear swap if at all later. I realized she's not a race car and more of a tank so I'm fine.

After much research, it's more of a fluff point for me now. I likely won't do it given the cost of it vs gains. Plenty more things to do in life at the moment, like keep rent paid in these times lol.
