I would do 4.56's which would be good for 33's since you will be using it primarily off road.

X2 to 4.56. You don't want to gear too low since your 30RH automatic doesn't have an overdrive like the 5-speed has.

X3 4.56s...plus, if you went to say 35s and 4.88s, you'd need a bigger axle in rear anyway
