I have the 4.0 with 3.73's. Right now I'm on 32's with steel wheels. It was ok to drive until I installed an ARB bumper and winch. Now it is in serious need of new gears. 33's would probably be doable on 3.73's but definitely not ideal.

Ill probably stick to my 31's with the 3.73 and then just go straight to 4.56 when I get my 35s in the ECGS D60's

Probably a good choice. You can always drive mine and see what you think.

I was there today. Smashed my SS on some rocks and got terrible death wobble on the way home. Luckily I have a KOR stabilizer at home. Hopefully I will get that installed tomorrow. I might actually make it out to prairie city tomorrow.
