For your 5-speed, 4.56 would be correct for 33" tires but you didn't say (and your Profile doesn't either) say what size tires you have so that ratio recommendation can only be made once we know your tire size. $1100-1400 is an average price to regear,

When you have a choice, buy American.

I didn't see the auto trany either. Deeper gears would be better.

02 tj sold, 90 yj, 08 jku, 03 vf750.
When in doubt dump the mag.

I thought I had put that in my profile, but I do indeed have 33's and plan on staying with that as far as I know. Thanks.

I updated my profile!

I have the 4.88 gears and ran 33's and now I run 35's, ok most of the time. I do have to use the OD button on occasion but only on the steeper mtn. grades.

I have 33's with the auto and regeared to 4.88, from 4.10. To me, there is only one other option than 4.88 gears, that would be to go deeper if you could. MPG did improve over stock gears with stock tires.

i have an 03 with the 42rle and i run 35s with 4.88s. I hated it when i had 33s on the 3.73s the thing was terrible to drive. i suggest a re-gear.
