Like stated before manuals come with 4.10s and autos it's an upgrade option from 3.73

Search tread lightly discount to get 1% below invoice. You should be able to swing that anyways. Just be careful they aren't screwing you on the financing or trade to make it happen. My rubicon with power and a hardtop only was MSRP 32000 and I got it for around 29000.

I think you ment to say get 3.73, in the first statement, for the rest of the statement to make sense?? Then you would likely be in the forum minority because people want the extra climbing torque. I could also see you saying that you would like even lower gearing than the 4.10s to push the larger than stock tires.
I'm sure you know this, but for noobs.
Low gearing = higher axle ratio number = more torque, climbing power, and acceleration = lower gas mpg, especially over 65mph. = the ability to run a larger tire = Higher engine RPM at a given speed
With my 4.10 gearing and stock rubicon tires, after 65mph you just start to notice the RPMs starting to get a bit high. If your going to be doing a lot of interstate driving, above 70 mph, on the stock 32" wheels, it's something to consider. Try to get a test drive in one with 4.10s if your getting the auto.
