Gearing question

I have a 2009 2 dr sahara and Iím trying to find out what gears i have. Going 70 on the highway Iím at about 2000rpm. If I went to 33s how would my performance suffer. Any answers would be great thanks.

Assuming stock, manual 6-speed Sahara:

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe if it's without the tow package, it's 3.21, with the tow package it's 3.73.

2000 rpm @ 70mph, stock rims and tires sounds like 3.21 to me.... I have 3.73 and at 70mph I'm somewhere in the neighborhood of 2300 rpm I think.

Okay, so it should be 3.21 since there's no tow package.

Didn't know that! If I were a manufacturer I probably wouldn't even bother with the 3.21 at all, since they're only available on two trims with one specific tranny and only without the tow group!

They're also utterly useless without the 29" tiny tire. For 32's, they're woefully inadequate- Mark W.
