Liquor Attorney. So not all bad...
I’m running 35’s... we’ll close enough 315/70-17’s and I’m having 4.56 added this coming Monday. Can’t wait to see/feel the difference.
I'm interested to hear how it goes. Please do a follow up!

@syreeves

I think @OMTBiker and @Golvach hit it spot on even though I have the auto.

I made a small somewhat review in this thread below. I know it will go in 8th at 45mph and I can actually roll on the skinny peddle and it will accelerate without downshifting.

once I get 500 miles and change the gear oil I plan to pull my 16’ tandem with a light load maybe around 2k lbs and see difference. I don’t tow much but a zero turn, utv or both.

I have the 8sp automatic, the difference was night and day going from stock 4.10 to 4.56 with 35's. The gearing brought the power band back to being usable and seeing 8th consistently on the highway.

I agree and I went from 3.73's to 4.56. Its bliss for sure.

One thought for everyone who may planning on sticking with 35’s (no larger) and is only concerned about restoring “pep”. Consider a Pedal Commander. I had a ‘’19 JLUR on 35’s and ultimately 37’s and now my ‘20 JTM on 35’s and a PC makes a world of difference. I would bet for most of you it would satisfy you in lieu of regearing at a fraction of the price. If your issue is towing or gas mileage, this won’t help you.

488s with 37s on my Sport S, really glad I did. There are more reasons to regear than just "restoring pep". You're putting far less strain on every bit of the drivetrain by regearing, recouping your torque, shift points, etc...
