Gears and more Gears (R & P)...

I was out in the garage today noticed I had several ring and pinions sitting around etc...

4.88s front and rear
3.55s D44
3.73s D44
3.55s D30
etc

Got me thinking of another project but I need some 3.73s for an 8.8. Anyone have any laying around they want to part with?

The funny thing is, I pulled over to check out a rolled vehicle and fell on my ***. I don't know how my bald 33s got around.

You can go up to 33's and still run the 4:10's. Most people with 33's run 4:10's.
