ya dig?

i would only really go with 4.10's if you are looking at 33's-35's or bigger
My revs are never up that high on the highway...Do you cruise at 90 miles an hour?
Never used 4 low? You havent been wheeling if you havent used 4 low!

with 4.10's 31's and a .79 OD you should be 2457 rpm and in 4th you should be 3111 rpm

*edit* and i stated 285/75s which will be 32.8 or 305/70s which will be 32.8 as well
traffic is fast around here... no, i'm not in 4th, maybe i'm not quite at 3000 rpm, maybe 2750...either way, it's close to the 3000 mark on my tach...

keep in mind also, with your 33's, your rpm is going to be lower at the same speed, than mine...

If I were you, I'd get in it, drive it to my house, hand me the keys....

Maybe paint the step bars black or remove them all together.
Swap the plastic bed rails for diamond plate to match the toolbox (unless that's a bed liner, not just rails).
Bigger tires, not monster truck tires, say 32".
Change the emblems to old school style.

almost 3000 rpm driving down the hiway, this was done on the way to work, at about 6am, which is the beginning of rush hour, and no, i wasn't tailgating people or swerving in and out of traffic, this is roughly the speed of the traffic in the morning here.. (about an hour later it's gridlock though)
