Gear ratio with 35's on JKU
What is the general consensus on the best gears in conjunction with 35's on the 2013 Unlimited? I just ordered a Rock Krawler 2.5" lift and some 35 x12.50's on Method Racing 17" wheels. I was thinking either 4.88 or 4.56's. I have 4.56 on my TJ with 35's, but that is with a 4.0 and an RH32 3 speed auto. Anyone with experience on the best all around set up?
Auto or manual? See FAQ for starters and then let us know which you choose. Suggested ratio is different for auto vs manual.

Your profile says Ohio. A lot of people are very happy with 4.10s in flat terrain on 2012+ with 35s. Since you're spending the money to regear, I would probably go for 4.56 gearing. Should be plenty low enough. Since you have a lot of higher speed limits up there I wouldn't want go too low and make the freeway miserable.
