4.88's are too tall of a gear for 35's......The reason Scott put 4.88's in is because he has 37's.


Sounds great Zach, i'd like to get some 4.56's also...........oops!

What chart/place are you getting that from? 4.56's would be good on 33's and meagerly ok on 35's...5.13's would be alittle bit over kill if your where gonna do long distance trips, so the 4.88's are the cats m3ow...strong in the 35" range and slight overkill in the 33" range....

4.88s are too tall for 35s as stated, sure you can run them but i do a mixture of highway and city, 4.56s are plenty fine for now.

those charts are based on a basci vehical.

try this

New Tire Diameter / Old Tire Diameter * Current Gear Ratio

35 / 31 * 4.10 = 4.62

now obviously they dont make a 4.62 so i went with a 4.56.

37 / 31 * 4.10 = 4.89

Basically a perfect match for 37s

This gets you in the same ball park as the stock ratio.

5.13s will not fit in the front of our Diffs.
I did plenty of reading and asking of other people before i bought my gears.

Scott is the gear guy not me. I just pulled everyhting apart he set the gears and made sure the mesh was right. then i reassembled. From what he said 4.88s are a pain.

do you have to lower the assembly for the front end or is it possible to get to it without dropping it?

All you have to do is on the passanger side is remove the brake caliper and upper ball joint.

then pop the CV on the passanger side out and slide it out.

once it is slid out move to the left side and pop the CV, the cv wont come all the way out so just leave it loose.

then you can unbolt the driveshaft, and the 3 mounting places for the Diff.

once those are loose start to wiggle it out as you are wiggling it out have someone pull the drivers side CV all the way out.

it should be out after all that. lol

Kinda what i figured...getting at those stock bolt locations was a bear...so i figured it would be faster and easier to just unbolt the drop bracket bolts
