Thanks Pete-- yes, I am interested in any information regarding the ratio. I had someone else tell me the same thing about somthing being wrong-- I am certain the transfer case is disengaged and it is in Hi. I will take another look tomorrow. I can only get between 35-40 tops and that is at about 3500-4000 rpm.
: I have a close friend in CA who rebuilt a jeep about 10 years ago. Big brained kind of guy. He changed the ratios, and, last I knew, still had all the calculations.
: : Question for my fellow Jeepers-- I have a 46' 2A with a stock 5:38 rear end-- I would like to achieve a little more top end (above 35 mph) so I can at least drive it in town. Has anyone changed the ring & pinion gears (rear & front) on their 2A's to a lower ratio (eg: 4:18....3.20....etc)?
: : I have read other posts from folks who have insalled an overdrive unit, but I don't want an additional gear shift and want to keep the appearance status quo.
: : Thanks everyone--
