Question New JK Owner and a Question

Hey guys, great forum! I'm picking up a new unlimited Rubi on Thursday and I've got a question about axle ratios and the tow package.

This particular Jeep is coming with the tow group - on jeep.com when you select this as an option it shows that the Jeep then comes with 3.73 gearing??!! Surely this can't be the case with the Rubicons. The salesman assured me it would be 4.10, but generally I trust salesman as far as I can throw them!

If anybody knows the answer to this question please let me know. I'm coming from a Liberty with 4.10 gearing and I'd hate to be stepping down to a Rubi with 3.73 (that just wouldn't be right ) Thanks in advance!

My dealer told me my X would come with the Rubi 4.10 transfer case. I laughed.

Thanks guys. That's what I figured, but the jeep website had me second guessing. Guess it is just a glich.

Every Rubi ever built (TJs to) has 4.10 gears. The Jeep website is really a POS when it comes down to trying to view options, etc.

Mine did. (Although I bought mine in 2007 when the 4.10 actually was a part of the trailer tow package.)

I still have some concerns regarding gearing after reading this thread: https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25082

Is there a label or something on the axle that will show me exactly what's in there?

Re: New JK Owner and a Question

Look at your window sticker. In the left column it shows "Standard Equipment" and on the right it shows "Optional/added Equipment". If there is conflicting information between the 2, what is listed on the right overrides its counterpart on the left. Kind of like talk radio.

Totally agree with your assessment of talk radio.

Does show 4.10 on the left along with next gen Dana 44s. Right side shows trailer tow group, but no mention of 3.73 gearing so I guess I'm good.

The label on my axle housing shows three sets of numbers:

P52114
544RF
TDKAR0630A3211

Does any of that mean anything to anybody?
