Stop being afraid of gears.

I'm running 35's and 4.88's on my 13 JK with the 6 speed and can run 60mph - 65mph and stay in the green/ECO area of the tac. My speedo is recalibrated with the AEV Procal and I'm getting the same MPG (17mpg - 17.8mpg) that I did with 3.73's and 285's (33" tire). When I was running the 285's and 3.73's, I wanted 4.10's.

You will still be in the green/ECO on your tac with 4.56's, 35's, and running 70 mph. 4.10's will not comfortably give you the full use of 6th gear especially if you do any towing/hauling or driving in the mountains.

I can guarantee 2 things.

1) You will not regret going with 4.56 gears.

2)If you go with 4.10's, you'll allways wish you chose 4.56's.

FYI - going with 4.56 gears. Already have everything spec'd out, just looking for an installer.

When you find one let me know, I just ordered my 4.88s today! A friend of mine will do it but he might have to go to Texas for work for like 6 months so if he does I'm going to need a installer too!

Yes happy. A lot better trail manners now and better high altitude capability. 14-16mpg on highway but was running 80mph, 2600ish rpm and lots of wind. 19-22mpg through all the CO Rockies (lower rpm crisis speeds). Plenty of power now in 6th gear while running highway speeds, too
