To help us out with helping you could you please take a little time to fill out your jeeps information in your jeep profile?

What year jeep....what motor ....auto or manual? You've informed you have 35's but the other information all plays a role in what gear ratio would best benifit you and your jeeps use.

Also you say it is not a Daily Driver but do you do highway driving with it? Also what is your "goal" with the vehicle?

^^^that would also help

but in general you're ok with 4.56's. Lots of guys around here will run 4.88's though for 35's.

Then again, you said it feels like a beast, therefore I would not change a thing.

Only if it's a 6cly.....if it's a 4 banger and 35's he'd need 4.88's for 33's just to set it back to stock area of ratio.
