Gear question

I have a 99 TJ 4.0 with 3.5 inch lift and 33x12.50 with the 3 speed auto transmission. What gears should I changed to for my set up? My stock gears are 3.07 and it's a little sluggish.
Thanks,
Scott

You will want to step up to 4.10's to be at the optimum gear ratio.

X2, 4.10 is the right ratio for 33" tires, 4.0L engine, and the 32RH 3-speed automatic transmission.

Make sure if you have the slightest thought of going to bigger tires, gear with that in mind. No sense in regearing twice, because you will end up going to that tire size anyways.
