I am new to the whole jeep thing. I have a 2004 wrangler sport on 15" rims with 33x12.5 tires. It's a stick shift and it has very little power. What is the optimal gear setup for my tires? Need to get it done before a road trip coming up.

Also. I plan on using it for offroading. But it is my daily driver as well.

Wrong section... this should go in the TJ tech or general discussion forum.

You will probably want 4.56's or 4.88's if it's the 4.0L with 33's. Do a search, there are tons of threads discussing gears for 33's.
