quick gear ques

Is a 8.8 w/3.73's w/33" tires = 8.8 with /4.10 w/35's
Basically the same amount of power (4.0 OHV engine or 4.0 SOHC)

just wandering cuz i see a ton of people with 33's and 35's/4.10 and some with 33's and 35's/3.73..

if your gonna get 33's get 4.56's its the best ratio for your transmission and 4.88's for 35's is best

running 4.10's on 33's you wont have as much acceleration but youll have a higher top speed then if you ranger a 4.30's or 4.56's

I SERIOUSLY RECOMEND 4.56's
