Icon14 35's and stock gears...

What is everyone's opinion about having stock gears running 35's?

Let's hear what you have to say.

4.0L SOHC

Auto Trans

4.10 gears

315/75/R16 MT's

Lets hear it.

I ran 35's with 4:10's when I had my Level II and it was OK. I still pulled 15 to 17 mpg.

that is what you say but regear and you will be like holy crap!

been there done it.

ran 31s stock
then 32s
then 33s
then 35s

got 4.56 with 35s big improvement.

now 37s and 5.13s, would never look back. stock sucked. stock gears with 35s suck.

sorry bro... NO.. regear at least 4.56 personally manual trucks can get away with it and still have ***** the auto zaps so much power of out of the 4.0L

the question being can you still drive with 4.10 and auto and 35's um yes... is it slower then normal and annoying um highly yes..

like for example take your truck to the dunes.. it would want to die.. 4.56 at the min...




now on the "lets make a thread to acted superior to another member" thing.. grow up really now..

If you are going to regear I would do 4:88's.

Stone my truck still had plenty of power with the tuner and 35's.

I would go 4.56 on a 4.0

Even on my little 3.0 4.88 is a little much for it, I am at high RPMS on hwy and forget about RPMS towing!

I lost 2mpg regearing...go figure!

i dont think so. 5.13s are way too much according to the math with 37s, yet its a blast to drive.

if you are lifting it who cares about mpg and RPM on the highway.

the 4.0 loves RPM, 4.88s and 35s are a good fit. i wouldnt have believed it before but now i do.

4.56s and 33s on the 4.0 SOHC

i had 4.10s and 35s for a while it is not that bad at all way doable. Now that i have 4.88s with the 35s i would never look back. EVER.

But 35's with 4.10's is defiantly fine, never had any problems

Diddo. With 4.10's my auto had to drop a gear to do ANY climbing at highway speeds. Looking back i would have gone 4.56 though, 4.88 is just too short for highway... Leaves room for 37's though if i ever felt the need to blow my D35 lol.

The word that was left out was YET... Shhhh



I'm not saying I wouldn't want 4.56's or 4.88's... But my 4.10's are fine... Even for wheelin, because most of the time I'm in LOW anyways... That's how I've been taught. High is harder on the trans... Especially with 4.10's... Not doggin it.. Just sayin..

I'd love some 4.56 or 4.88's...

When I do my SAS with D44 & D60... Zach highly recommended 5.38's... Which is looking pretty optimistic right now lol
yeah there is a reason you are in LOW... lol you are making up for lack of gearing to operate in high. its harder on the truck with 4.10s and 35s rather than 4.56s and or 4.88s

if you like 4.10s and 35s, 5.13s and 40s will be an improvement for you

if you get out in some sand or sticky mud, try to climb something you will soon realize the need for better gearing.
