Axle gear ratio

With the 8 speed automatic coming out, has anyone seen anything addressing the standard gear ratio with this transmission? (3.21 vs 3.73, etc).

I doubt we'll hear about the gear ratios until Jeep debuts the new Wrangler to the world. At least I haven't heard anything about it yet.
Gear ratios are definitely something we're going to have to wait on. It's not one of the usual things that'll get released so early.
I'm thinking with the 8 speed auto trans, the 3.21 may be more desirable than it is with the current 5 speed auto trans. Provided, of course, they offer the same ratios then, that they do now...
3.21 seems like it'll be good enough, not too long, not too short. Seems appropriate for what it's intended to do
The 8 speed may also perform in such a way as to give the 3.73 longer legs on the highway. That could end up being the best of both worlds. Going to be interesting to see how this all plays out.
