4.56 based on the weight of the rig plus it is my daily driver, so its splitting hairs really. When you look at the chart, 4.56 is in the middle of the application chart. I don't do a lot of 1st gear only rock climbing. More 1st and 2nd gear trails.I'm also on 3.73's but currently have 285/70-17's KO2's. I'm also built heavy. Just curious that you mention 4.88's but mention 4.54's are in your future...not to split this thread....but why are you going 4.54's instead of 4.88's for these tires? I'm considering 4.54's with my current "33's" because 4.88's would seem too tall for them.....but these kenda's in this size are interesting....thoughts?
I also think the prevailing recommendations are 4.56 for 35s w/auto & 4.88 for 35s/manual. Again, 4.56 vs. 4.88 is really a very minor difference. I can tell you that 4.88 is a very short 1st gear! I sometimes pull out in 2nd.4.56 based on the weight of the rig plus it is my daily driver, so its splitting hairs really. When you look at the chart, 4.56 is in the middle of the application chart.

Sorry, yeah I meant too short not tall in my last reply. I agree that 4.56 seems good for 35's....so here's a question for the collective: would 4.56 still be acceptable for my "33's"? I'm fairly happy with them but not the 3.73's....I would also like to avoid regearing again in the future but would like the option to run 35's or 33's.I also think the prevailing recommendations are 4.56 for 35s w/auto & 4.88 for 35s/manual.

Will do. Thanks. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. 🥃😎I believe that 4.56 w/33s and an auto will land in the 'performance' category of the chart. If you look around you will find a gearing chart that has some 'recommendations' on gearing vs. tire size vs. transmission type. They are everywhere and easy to find. Check them out to get another view of the impact of gears & tire size on rpms @ a specific speed.
I recall mine fitting, but it pushed on the chmsl a bit too much. I have a rubicon but I do not think that changes the offset. I did install a teraflex carrier shortly afterwards, but the wheel and tire did fit Initially. if you relocate the third brake light it should fit just fine.Negative. Stock wheel may have something to do with it? May need a spacer?

I haven’t gotten my fenders on yet because it’s been too cold during this mid-south deep freeze (woke up to 4F this morning). But on the bright side, I’ve got tons of snow to play in and I can echo your sentiment. These tires are fantastic in the snow! Much better than my old BFG mud terrain. And I’d say even slightly better than the Goodyear wrangler all terrain. The siping seems to grab the snow well.These tires continue to surprise me. 16" of snow and they just dig down and still move you forward...
I have the 2-door highlines, too. Not a fan how they intersect the rear bumper.Mopar fender flares finally installed and plenty of clearance now around the tires with bump stop flex. No rubbing. The teraflex hinge didn’t provide enough spacing by itself (~1/4”) to be able to mount the spare tire to factory mount, but with the teraflex mount it moves up and back allowing it to fit.
