Gear ratio question

Hello guys , please mind my unexperienced status, just want to have opinions on the good and bad sides of having a gear ratio boost.
I have a 2012 sahara unlimited
- ARB locks front and rear
- ARB bumpers front and rear
- Warn winch
- Cooper tires 33' with 1.25 spacers on Oem rims (rugged ridge on their way)
- Old Man Emu suspension kit 2.5' lift with nitro shocks
- Lightforce genesis
Has somebody tried to go 4.1 on this configuration? What would exactly be the benefits? And the dark sides? Should i go for it or it would ruin my daily commute on highways?
Thank you for any help

You got 3.73's now? With only running 33's I would stay with the 3.73's then if you ever go up in tire size, regear then.

if money is no object then going to 4.10's wouldn't hurt but remember regearing isn't cheap so best to only have to do it once.. If you believe you have 0% chance of going to 35's or bigger then uping for your stock gearing to 4.10's will help across the board.. but in the end it's up to you.. Regearing typically costs 1500 dollars +/- a few hundred dollars

if you have 3.73s now, going to 4.11 is not that big of a jump for the cost. I would say 4.56's if I was going to do it. However, it all depends on our current ratio/trans etc.
