    Which begs the question: why haven't you done this already? You said when you got this that bigger tires and a gear change were planned.

    After driving some Wranglers recently, I am stunned anyone would ever settle for the 3.21 gears when the 3.73s are just $190 (and used to be as low as $50).
    The exception would be if they planned to drop in 4.56, 4.88, etc... immidiately.

    I can tell you guys don't go offroading much. I can't remember if the jeep you got came with lockers, add some if it didn't. Throw in the 4.56s in there while you're at it. Or you can keep doing the cosmetic mods, its up to you.

    Special ordered our 2017 Unlimited with the 3.73 and we wont know if there will be any difference (mileage, ride, handling etc) at the time we add the tow package & larger tires (33's)
