05 axle gearing

I have an 05 TJ with a 2.4 and a six speed. I'm interested in running 33x10.50x15 tires. I've searched the forum and found for 33's that 4.56 will be ok, 4.88 will be better. This appears to be the recommendation for the 2.5 that came with 410 gears. Is it the same for mine, that came with 3.73 gears? Thanks for any help.

I think that 4.56 would be better with the NSG370. The trans is geared lower than the 5 speed.

I agree with Finno.

I have a 5spd manual and just upgraded my gears to 4.10 for 31.7 inch tires. My tranny is a little different than yours, so the gearing suggestion is correct.

Do a search on this forum. You'll see this question raised a few times.
