2012 rubi... Auto tranny, to get 3.73 or 4.10???

what would be the better choice for a daily driver 2012 rubi with auto tranny, the 3.73 or the 4.10?

4.10 and wouldn't even think about a 3.73. Those getting the 3.73 will later regret it. May not admit it but will regret it. Unless you never plan on off roading (not sure why buy a Rubi if not) or never plan on getting more aggressive tires (a bug you can't help but do). Just ask a current 4.10 manual (about the same ratio as new auto) if they wish they had 3.73. You will have a hard time finding one. There is a huge business on hoping you will get the smaller gears so you have to regear later.

You should be able to test drive 2012 JK Rubi autos with both axles soon. Maybe next week, depending on where you are. Why not wait and be sure before dropping $36K and find your gearing is too high or too low for your needs?

My opinion is well known here!

well im really not sure about gearing. but i am aware that a high gear will give a little extra torque. and I definitely want that.

if you're doing new tires later this is all rhetorical . . .

A lot of people wonder what the new auto will do but really it is so close to the manual all you have to do is look at the current manual owners or even go to the dealer right now and try a manual sport with a 3.73 and a manual Rubi with 4.10 and you will know the difference.

And I really say this because I know so many non rubi manual owners right now that would love to regear and 4.10 or 4.56's but unfortunately having a hard time finding them. They don't want 3.73 and they are not sure 4.88 want be too much. But 4.10 and 4.56 are hard to find for D30 axles in a quality gear set. But there is at least one thing a 2012 Rubi owner can do is find 4.10's later because they have those gears for D44s. The bad thing though is to regear cost $1500 to do later and only $50 now.

I disagree ... It depends on application. The new motor has a much flatter torque curve and hits it sooner than the old motor. And, with the deeper gears on the auto, 3.73s will do perfectly fine for overlanding on stock tires. Plus, you'll get mildly better gas mileage.

IMHO, there's no need to get 4.10s with the new auto unless you'll be rock-crawling or you think you'll go with larger tires later - even then, you may need to regear depending on how big you go.

Yes I agree the new motor is better but not much at the wheels at normal driving speeds. One thing the new motor does have in common with the 3.8 is it makes better hp at higher rpm's and just runs better there off road. The new motor doesn't really see a big difference until you get higher rpms which 4.10's will help.

But again, you will not regret 4.10 at all, but you may regret 3.73 and it will cost a lot to correct it.

Have you driven the new drivetrain with 3.73s, or 4.10s for that matter?

Or, read the reviews on this and other threads of those who have?

Have you seen AEV Dave's (Dave Harrinton, founder, AEV's) opinion on the 3.6L and gearing?

I decided on 4.10 with a JKU Rubi because I plan on putting 35" tires on it. I don't see a problem with the 3.73 if you stick with the stock tires. The RPMs will be about the same with either configuration. On the AEV forums, Dave has driven the 2012 with 4.10 gears and says it will be a nice setup for someone wanting to put 35" tires on and not need to regear like the earlier model JKs have to do. If you want better gas mileage, stick with the 3.73 gears.

Of course not but I have seen the dynos on vehicles with the 3.6L in it and the new auto has a final ratio very close to the manual and I have drove both of them with each gear.

Again, you may be alright with 3.73 and later you get the bug and get better tires and regret it. But even with stock tires you will not regret 4.10 and it will help if you get 35's later if you wish or even 33's.

Not saying that 3.73 want do. they will especially if you keep it stock. But you will not regret getting 4.10's either and if you change your mind later and do more off roading or get bigger tire you will have better gears to handle it. That is the reason I said MAY regret.

Again, you will not regret 4.10, you may regret 3.73. You may not but you definitely wont 4.10's

Bingo! We have a winner!

Gearing choice is dependent on YOUR intended use and mods. Period.

Yep,,, for me I plan to have 35's on before I get 200 miles on the jeep,, I plan to have extra weight from bumpers, winch,, extra lights ect.
I'm running 5:13 gears now and am just HOPING that if I go with 4:10's I won't have to (want to) regear still. I expect some differance with the new engine and tranny but I will be surprised if it is enough get by with 4:10's for what I use a jeep for,,, and my jeep IS a daily driver.
I will also say if I was just going to buy a daily driver and never off road it,,, it would NOT be a jeep . But I DO off road so a jeep it is

I respectfully disagree again ... As UHB said, it depends on your use. If you are running stock tires and/or overlanding instead of rock-crawling, 4.10s with the new lower geared auto box could quite possibly make the final drive too low for one's needs rendering 1st, 2nd, and possibly even 3rd gear in LOW range too low to be used effectively.

You'll be golden! "4.11 [sic] is ideal for 35s"


Anybody want to challenge Dave Harriton's, founder of AEV's, opinion:

The A580 auto is geared lower throughout its range.
Whats this mean? It means that 4.11s with the A580 is equivalent to 488 with the 42RLE. So 4.11 is ideal for 35s.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only person on this board who has driven a 3.6 A580 with 35s and 4.10.
The 3.6 does not require the same ratios as the 07-10 JKs, which is good because the pinion gears are that much stronger. 4.88 would be fine for 37s.

Period!

I'm sure AEVshouldn't be doubted, but--

They aren't mentioning ONE IMPORTANT ITEM---

Does the "jesus" eng/and either auto/manual, work in O/D with 35/37" tires and 4.10 gears--I seriously doubt it !!

Who cares ? you say-Heh Heh we'll see, won't we ?

Based on what? Your gut feeling, test drive, calculations...? Educate us, master.

Note that AEV Dave said 37s would require 4.88.

Again things can change. Once you buy it you may want to do more off roading later and larger tires are a bug. You can say all you want that you will never do it but that doesn't mean things change later. It is better to be ready then not. 4.10 will be great daily driver and better off road gears.

I just don't get why anyone would buy a Rubicon then neuter it. If all you need is 3.73 then why not save your money and get a very capable sport or Sahara

What I hear you saying is lower gears are better in every off-road situation. If that's what your saying, then we are on difference sides of the 'what-you-need-to-wheel' fence ... simply put, going by the numbers, 4.10s with the new auto are ONLY better off-road if your "off road" is rock-crawling (or other, VERY low speed maneuvering). If you're overlanding, then 4.10s will make 1st and possibly 2nd and 3rd gears in LOW range too low to be of any use.

I don't think anyone should buy anything they can't use. IMO, buy for your intended application, not for what you think you might do.

No that is not what I am saying. What I am saying is if you need what a Rubicon has to offer over a sport then you need the gears. If you don't off road extreme then there is no reason to spend thousands more for a Rubicon. That kind of off roading can easily be handled by a very capable Sport with 3.73 gears. But if your going all the way to upgrade to a Rubicon so you can handle the more difficult trails, mainly rock crawling, then why would you want to degrade it with the gear choice. And those that don't take in account what may happen will end up paying a lot in the end. So you should think about what can happen that may not be what your thinking about right now. Could be costly later if you don't.

From my experience, a lot of opinions about gearing are based on nothing more than a "mines bigger than yours" attitude.

Show me your calculations, describe your actual experience with a 3.6L x W5A580 X ANY GEARS, or your opinions are just that. I don't think you'll find me giving an unsupported opinion here. I would prefer to just cite data, and the opinions of people whom most would consider experts.

Without facts, your just blowing smoke, and I don't think that helps the out the OP.


Of course, my usual caveat... I'm an idiot

Lets wait and hear, as you say, some opinions of ACTUAL driving tests with 35s/37s and towing and O/D fair enough ??
