I have a 22 JLUR with 4.88's on order, planning on going to 35's, but it's cheaper to get factory gears vs doing it down the road.
I came from the mid 80's Toyota pickup world and those came with 4.10's with 28's and when upgrading to 33's 4.88's was the gear, and that was with a 2.4 liter...
My wife's 2015 JK is rot free, not much done, she did have the hinges replaced under warranty in 2019, not bad considering we live in MI and on a dirt road.

No telling what the hold up is on lots of these builds, I ordered 11/29, pick a option that might be the delay...
