I have a 98 zj and have purchased a rough country 3.5 inch lift. I want to put 32’s on it but many of my friends have told me to change the gear ratio, is this necessary for 32’s-33’s?

Gear Ratio

No need to change gear ratio with 32's or 33's. I have a 01 WJ and I'm running 33's with stock 3.73 gears. Not a problem!!

You will notice some lag in acceleration and some speedo difference but my concern is clearance issues if you are leaving the stock inter fenders and bumper. I have a four inch suspension lift on my 98 ZJ with 31 10.50. Running the stock 7” rims was not a problem but when I upgraded to an 8” aftermarket with more offset then the clearance became an issue. After carefully trimming and replacing the factory track bar with an adjustable rough country bar to center the body back over the axle I have eliminated the clearance issue. Good luck getting those 32/33 tires on under a 3.5 inch lift.
