Towing gears JKU

I have a 2012 jku that I plan on pulling a 3400 pound (if it's fully loaded) camper with and trying to figure out the best gears to run so it's not always struggling but I can still do the speed limit. Planning on running 33's or maybe 35's while pulling camper. More than likely I'll stay with 33's. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

You need to decide tire size first. Aim for blue.

Keep in mind, you can make the jeep tow better, but whatever tow rating it came with from the factory is what you legally can tow.

It's a big confusing topic that is compounded by the fact that jeep doesnt put the actual GCWR in the door jam.
