Link for Gear recommendations?

I thought there was a thread that had gear recommendations listed based on trans type and tire size, but I can find it anywhere. Does anyone have a link? I ran several searches, but didn't really find anything.

The easiest way is to search Google for "JK gear chart" and then click on images.

I can help you too if you want to tell me what you've got.

Cool! I appreciate the search tip. I'm on my phone about to go to sleep, so I'll check it out in the morning.

Basically, I have a very lightly modded 2015 Rubicon Unlimited. It has the 5 speed auto trans. I am looking at putting 37" tires on it in the next 2 or 3 months. But I wanted to get all the cash together to do wheels, tires and gears all at once.

My goal its to gear it in such a way that with everything in place, the final ratios will have the revs a touch higher than stock, so I can get better application of torque for towing and a slower than stock crawl while off-road. I'm not worried about fuel economy, but it would be nice to travel at the speed limit in a 75 MPH zone without worrying about valve float. LoL.

Based on a 3.6 with an auto trans and 37" tires you're going to want a 4.56 - 4.88 gear. 4.88s will sing a little more at 75 - 85 MPH (we have speed limits like that where I am), but the extra low in grunt will be nice.

IMO, if you're not in the mountains or high elevation with a lot of hills the 4.56 is the way to go for someone who travels longish distances at 75+.

I'm out in the mountains only about 5 or 6 times a year. There are a few steep hills around here, but most of my driving is fairly flat.

Any particular brands that seem to be better than others? Or any I should stay away from?

I appricate the feed back.

I move a ton of these Yukon packages. The ring and pinions are Yukon and the master install kits we use are Motive Gear with Timken bearings.

I'm holding the sale from last month over through this week since I'll be out at SEMA.

Wow! Nice! As a customer coming from the world of racing cars, even your regular price is great. I used to spend about $450 in parts an materials just for the rear end of the race car.
