4.56 with 35s

Well eventually I plan on DL and getting 35s. Right now im running 31s with 3.73, it works and get 18 mpg city with it but the power is a litttle low. Id rather get the good gas mileage which is why I am leaning towards 4.56 being that its some what the same ratio of tire to gearing I have right now but I just wanted to get some imput on the 35s and 4.56. I know driving style differs from person to person and different engines and all make a difference but i just wanted to see if any body running them and what kinda MPG are your gettting.

4.88s with 35s will give you better milage and power.

Kid I went to school with had 33's on 4.56 with a 3.0. The gas milage sucked but it had decent power. It was drivable. Nothing too serious.

4.56 is too much for 33's so I'd say 35's would be perfect.

I drive like a grandma to get those mpgs, if i could get 16 city I would be happy. I would rather get 4.88 but i can get a free 4.56 8.8 from a friend that just bought a full size so I wanted to just see what everyone says. From looking at the chart on what 4.56 and 35s would be its the same set up as my 31/3.73 so just add more weight and it should only drop a tad

If you can get the 4.56 8.8 for free then yes do it. But if you were going to buy them I would take the 4.88's over the 4.56.
