I'm trying to find the best gear ratio for my truck and want to proceed with it but I can't help but see many people put high gear ratio's in cars and have them go faster?
I currently have 3:10's upgrading the gears to 4:56 Ratio plus increasing tire size to a 33 over a 27. I want to make sure that that my drag will feel the same if not less after I get the new gears in. what I am saying is... will it be easier to get the truck rolling.... will first gear max out quicker, like at 10mph instead of 15 - 25mph, what I don't want to do is make my clucth so hard to work without stalling, that it is not worth it. I want to make sure if anything my clutch will be easier in 1st gear so I can crawl in 2X4 at a slower speed without stalling.
so what I am saying is with 4:56 gears, my truck will really be easy with 27 inch tires on it, and not have much highway speed, but with 33's my truck will be harder to get rolling, but have a better highway speed. I don't need top end, espically with a 4inch lift, I seem to push it on the highway already, don't wana find myself on the side, so maybe these gears will govern my speed a bit lower... hopefully... all I need is 65 and I am goody :)
