TnDz TJ 4.56's is the way to go flyboy367.... I run a 2004 X 4.0 5 speed on 33's and 4.56's is perfect for all around use.... if I were to stay off the freeways ( which I don't ) I would go 4.88's for the offroad advantage of lower gears.

I pull around 2500rpms at 65mph on the freeway and maintain that on some pretty good grades in North Reno.

Derp How is the 4spd auto v.s. 3spd auto v.s. the 5 spd? I have the 5 spd and am wondering how the auto compares..maybe I'll swap someday of its worth it.

4.56 would be too low of a ratio for 33" tires and your 3-speed automatic, go with 4.10. 4.56 is only appropriate for 33" tires when you have a manual transmission. Only go with 4.56 if you plan on 35" tires in your near-term future.

tj_guy99 I just went on a 2600 mile trip with D44/D30 with 4:56 gears in a '99 with 4.0 and 3sp auto. It was great in the mountains while in 4 low. The drive out had me wishing I would have gone with 4:10. 65mph was about as fast as I ever went and that is at close to 3200rpm. A 12 hour drive at 3200rpm seems like abuse, but the Jeep never had any issues and performed very well. As I take on more challenging trails, I will probably love the 4:56 more, but I had a stock Jeep with us on the trails so we didnt get too aggressive with our trail selection. Plenty of power with the 4:56. When my buddy was struggling on the highway with his transmission constantly downshifting, I was just cruising along. I did only get around 12mph on the way out running 65. I slowed to 60 for the drive home and got around 14.

Derp If your auto is the 3spd you need to gear significantly higher tk regain power and this may be too large of a pinion for the d30 so you may need to swap to a d44
