If you are gonna wheel go 4.88.  If not, stick to 4.56 got the mileage.

I'm looking at a possible lift and tires for mine (3.5" and 37" tires).  These ratios seem pretty high for a Jeep that will be driven a lot too.  Is there a good compromise gear to use for it, like in the mid 3.##'s?

I've tried really hard not to chime in on this thread because it's always a debate between 4.56 and 4.88 for 35's and really its just everyone's opinion when it comes down to those two ratios. Here is my opinion having run 34s and 37s with 4.88s in my 2014 DD; for 35s if you rarely wheel go with 4.56 otherwise go with 4.88 (I would still go with 4.88s if I didn't wheel).

I'm looking at a possible lift and tires for mine (3.5" and 37" tires).  These ratios seem pretty high for a Jeep that will be driven a lot too.  Is there a good compromise gear to use for it, like in the mid 3.##'s?

You are talking about 37s...You want 4.88s! Hell, I kick myself for not doing 5.13s (which I plan do this winter).

You want minimum 4.56 gears for 37s, probably 4.88-5.13

Yeah for 37's you definitely want to go with 4.88s or 5.13s. You could get by with 4.56s but if you're going to regear you may as well go with the higher gears. Any gears starting with "3" are out of the question IMO

Thanks for the advice guys. Sounds like preference for the most part. I likely will be doing little wheeling.
