Gearing Question

New to forum so my responses will be delayed.

Long story short have a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport Unlimited with an automatic. My buddy let me try his rubicon tires (2013). Didn't feel right at takeoff. Will 3.73 gears work? If so what steps are required to exchange the gears in terms of (computer/speedometer/transmission) if any that I have to take into account in terms of expenses?

Which wheel package do you have? Of you have the 17 inch wheels, there is no difference. The tires are the same size, just one is a more aggressive tread. If you have the 16 inch steel wheels, than your speedometer would be a little off. Other than that, 3.73 is a good ratio for the stock 32" tires
