Rock slider to ground @ t-case crossmember - 17 1/2"
Bottom of receiver hitch to ground - 17 1/2"
Updated after Teraflex 3.5" RT3 suspension and 39" tires;
Rock slider to ground @ t-case crossmember - 22 1/2" (+ 5")
Bottom of receiver hitch to ground - 22 1/2" ( +5")
Pretty interesting that with the lift and 39" tires, it's really only 5" higher than stock. That doesn't seem right, but the #'s don't lie.
Overall height ground to hardtop is 6' 5" tall.
Far as the gearing/speed/RPM's, the Rubicon Gladiators still have 4.10 gears in the diffs. The OD ratio in the ZF 8HP is pretty high at .67, so running at 75 MPH (GPS verified speed) the Pentastar is turning around 2,100 RPM. It seems like the engine prefers more speed to pull the gearing 8th has, 80 MPH seems better in 8th gear
And some interesting gearing & RPM info, comparing stock (with 4.10's and 33's) to 5.13's and 39's;
I know some people think 5.13's are too deep for 39/40" tires, but I think they're ideal and bring the RPM back to where the engine runs stock, with 4.10's. It's turning just a little more RPM, which will help keep it in it's happy place with the heavier tires & taller profile. I did notice that the transmission held 8th gear even on smaller hills at 70+ MPH. It would drop to 7th on bigger hills. And driving up Solider Summit with the cruise control set at 65 MPH, it would drop down to 5th gear at 4,000 RPM on the steepest hills, then it would upshift into 6th and hold it well, while maintaining speed up those big climbs.
2400 RPM @ 80 MPH in 8th gear.
2050 RPM @ 70 MPH in 8th gear.
Also, some MPG info after a roadtrip to SLC and back with around 600 miles on the new build.
At 75+ MPH the engine seems to average 14 MPG.
If I keep it under 70 MPH, it'll average 15-16 MPG.
And if I keep it under 55 MPH, it'll average 18 MPG.
Those are pretty impressive numbers considering it's spinning 39's!
