what would be the best gearing???

Ok I have a 4.0l 5 speed sahara.
My gears are 3.07and I run 31" tires.
It takes alot to get to 100 km (60 mph).
If theres a verry slight incline it slows down quite a bit.

I would like to pull a tent trailer but i think it would have alot of trouble.
So what gearing should I go with?3.55 or 3.73?

Definitely go 3.73 over 3.55. If you plan to ever go to 32" tires, I'd regear to 4.10. Actually, 4.10 would be better for even 31" tires, especially since you want to pull a tent trailer. The Rubicon comes with 4.10 and 31" tires right from the factory.

When you have a choice, buy American.
