Default Time to regear the LJ?

I've got a stock LJ (for now)... at what tire size would you call it time to regear? I'm on 31's now and would guess that if I were staying there I would keep the stock gears.. Should I stay stock on 33's? 35's?

I get the feeling that 35's would want regearing, but 33's are kinda in a grey area..

Any opinions?

JB

If it's a manual I think it should have 3.73's ?? if so, I'm running 33's on on 3.73's and am pretty happy. Long term I may re-gear, but overall, it does the speed limit on the freeway just fine and has plenty of power.

4:10's for 33's or 4:56 for 35's should make you happy.

The six speed has sort of low gearing 2nd through 4th so you might be able to get away with less gear ratio.
