Gear ratio question

hey guys I'm sure this isn't that the read somewhere but I can't find it at the moment I have a 2003 Wrangler X with at 2 inch spacer lift on 33 by 10.5 inch tires I was just wondering what the proper gear ratio would be for this setup is? I believe I have 3:07 and I just can drive with those anymore I am going to be doing some four wheeling and some commuting but there's just not enough torque in the 3:07 gears any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

5 speed manual? If so 4.56 is the best choice. I've had 4.10 and 4.56 on my rigs with 33s and 4.56 is far superior.

2354 rpm at 65 mph in 5th according to this gearing calculator: http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html


It's better to have too much gear than not enough.
