Help with gears

I have a 2010 sport 4dr with a 6 speed and 321 gears. i have a 3.25 inch lift and 33/11.50/18 nittos. Need to regear and not sure on what size was thinking 410 or 456. Dont want them to be to low. I do alot of highway driving. Dont think I will go any bigger on tire size. Thanks for the help

If you plan on sticking with 33s (planning on not doing something later on to a Wrangler rarely goes to plan!). Then 4:10s would do you just fine in my opinion...

Yeah, but 4.56's wouldn't be too bad either. I don't think I'd go deeper than that, though, if you're sure you'll never go above 33's.

3.73 would be my choice for a 33 tire for hwy usage I wish I would have chosen a bigger gear than the 4.88 for my 37s turning 3k rpm sucks on the gas mileage

6spd? Sounds high for 488 and 37s (i'd have to look it up)

I'd go with 4.56 gears if it were me. But then again, you live in Florida which is 6000 ft elevation lower than me, ... and flat! You might get by with 4.10s, but the 4.56s would give you more get up and go, something the Unlimited certainly needs.

Elevation works wonders, he also does a lot of highway driving and wants to keep the revs down. Which isn't too hard where the biggest 'hills' are man-madelol

Great resource to help you overthink your issue. Just keep in mind if you go 33's it will only be a few months that you wished for 35's if you go off road. I am just saying!!!
