Exactly...good catch...I should have mentioned that....finding a great/reputable shop is extremely important

I just regeared my 12' JK to 4.56's and ARB's front and rear. I'm running a 34.6" tire and here is my suggestion. 4.56's, a manual transmission and 35's is almost perfect...its a bit too much gear if you ask me. I think with this setup you would be able to run a smaller 37" tire and it will be perfect. If you never plan on going larger than 35's, I would do 4.10's.

I can't see anyone's locations with the iPhone app, but as a 2012 jkru owner with a six speed, 4.10s and 35s, I say gear lower (4.56). 4.10s work, but I spend a lot of time in the mountains and speed limits here are 65-70.

I should have qualified my statement. I haven't driven much in the mountains yet. Mostly flat land and city driving.

4.10s with 35s is probably a sweet spot for mileage for what it's worth. I regularly get 16 in town and CAN get 18 highway if I'm driving easy.

You could also look for some Rubi take-offs. My '13 Rubi is 4.10 with about a 34.5" tire and it has good zip on the street and plenty of crawl in 4-lo. Though, I think the 4:1 transfer case helps with that. I think it would be fine even up to 37's before I started thinking 4.56's.

I foundation guy selling his 4.10s off his '10 Rubi I understand I could use the rear ones but not the front seeing as how I have a sport. Am I wrong?

Either way the actual ring and pinion is a small part of the cost. Labor, bearings, sealant and oil will make up more than the cost of the gears themselves.

The other part of the issue is that some shops won't install used parts or parts that you sourced elsewhere, and if they do they will make up the loss by charging more for labor. Furthermore they will not warranty any problems, even if the gears are not set up properly.

Just FYI. Some people still buy and install used gears and that's fine, but it would behoove you to talk to the shop who will be installing the parts first.

true: the d30 you have in the front can not use the ring and pin from the d44 in that rubi used gear set.
