We need to know what size tire you are running to tell you what gears to use.

auto or manual tranny and what tire size are you running?

Also it's easy to tell what rearend you have. Just go the the back of your jeep and look at the back of your rear axle. On the differentail cover there is a fill plug on the right side of the cover. If the plug is rubber it is a D35, If it is a steel plug with a square insurt hole it is the D44.

Yep your tire size and transmission type will be needed before a good gear ratio recommendation can be made.
