jkjeeper06 If you plan to go to 35's one day, I agree with Dan do 5.13. I wouldn't go less than 4.88 tho on an auto

Daniel_M IMO, 4.56 are useless in the 3.8L. I would go 5.13

4.88s will put you just under 2500 RPM in high gear @ 70mph, which would be pretty good. However, if you ever decide to go to 35" tires, you'll once again be undergeared.

If you think you'll stick with the 33" tires (which are actually 32s, in all likelihood), then go 4.88. The 4.56 just isn't enough of an improvement on the 3.8L automatic trans Jeeps, IMO.
