4.56 Gears Venders..? 2012 Auto

Can someone recommend where to get quality gears at a quality price!
Just put 35's on my 2012, it's got 3.73's now, I'm thinkin 4.56 will put me where I want to be... Automatic
Not to sound to lazy, but I prefer to buy from someone who also sets gears,
to get a really good idea on pinion depth..plug and play
Maybe a locker and rockrails also along with a few other things.
I'd like to find a nice package deal on everything I need.

Gene,

I would be happy to look into those gears for you. I just went on an expedition of epic proportions looking for 4.56 gears for a Rubi axle.

I recommend Nitro axle and gear personally, do you have a preference?

Gene, 4.56 seems odd. Most of the auto guys on 35"s seem to be going 5.13. Not trying go second guess you. Maybe you've found that with the new (hugely improved) auto in the 2012 will work better with 4.56s?

08 2Door Red Rubicon. Rock Krawler 5.5 Longarm Coilover, Polly rear Coilovers. AEV hood & wheels, 37"KM2s, JE Reel 1350 shafts, 5.38 Yukon gears, Superior axles, Shrockworks stubby, Fab Fours rear, sPod, Rebel Offroad brakes, Warn winch and lots more.

The guys with the '11s and older go that low and lower. With the '12s, the auto final drive is comparable the manual final drive (.84 if I remember correctly).

I have a '12 and thought long and hard over which way to go. For an auto that will never go larger than 35s that is daily driven, I'd bet 4.56s would be really good. However, I decided on 4.88s as it only adds about 150 to 200 rpm at 70, and I wouldn't be surprised if I end up on 37s and I also do pull trailers (light ones) from time to time.


For what it's worth, my '12 Unlimted has the auto and 3.21 gears currently. With my 35s, the thing pulls harder than my 09 2 dr did with the stick 4.10s and the same tires.

To the OP, I purchased my gears and an ARB for the rear from River City Offroad and couldn't be happier. Great prices, will match anyones price, and seems like a generally cool guy.
