I have no current plans to change tire unless I could sell them and get a larger tire but this would be for looks only. Not a good reason I suspect.
Honesty is good
Buy some rubi take offs, 5 rims and tires for cheap, thats what I would do.
From what I read on here, go the lowest (highest number) you can get away with.
You have 3.73 so going to 4.10 would a small but noticeable change. But I have heard that the 4.56 gears are harder to come by, and more expensive-don't know why.
My Rubicon has stock 4.10 but it is stick, don't know how 4.10 works In the auto.
Dunno- see who else answers you.
I would go for the 4.56 if possible
