F 4.88's. I'm rocking 4.10's same as when I had 37's. I like still getting close to 18mpg. I imagine I'll be back around 16 with these though. May finally splurge and get 4.56's if I can find another front diff for cheap.


I love the bigger holes on 18's. I never wanted to get these wheels cause they were too small on 15's.

Man I cant believe your stick rocking the 4.10's. Even with my 33's id like to move up and get some grunt back. Your wheel bearings have got to be screaming if you ever take those off pavement lol.

Either way looks very good.

Still on original wheel bearings even after being lifted on 35's and 37's prior to these for about 40k if not more and yes truck is used.

I hate this gear game everyone plays. Just cause it says something on paper doesn't always mean something won't work. I'd hate to pass you with my undergeared truck while still getting decent mpg. That would suck for all the money you spent on gears. With that being said though I may go to 4.56 for the simple fact I don't do much long distance driving on my daily commute......Off pedestal.

Man you've had really good luck with your truck then, props to you.

I can totally understand wanting to keep the 4.10's for gas mileage purposes I was just saying sometimes it can be a pain if you need to speed up real fast or something like that. Can it be done, totally especially if you dont drive the truck that much but I put over 100 miles on mine everyday so little things you really start to notice after awhile you know. But I can see how itd be hard to justify the cost of new gears just for a little more get up.

First of all if you're going to regear don't do 4.56, for the money that you're going to spend the difference isn't worth it. You need to go 4.88 or leave it alone. I've had 3.73, 4.10, 4.56, and 4.88 in my truck so I have pretty good experience with the difference in gearing. I know I have a 3.0 and it's a slow POS engine but your 4.0 isn't the fastest thing in the world either. Your truck is an auto right? You'll find that the truck doesn't have to drop gears or unlock the convertor sometimes when you speed up or go over a hill and try and maintain your speed. Obviously your RPM is gonna be higher at times but you'll find it worth it, especially if you don't drive like a slow retard. AND you tow so you'll find it easier and your trans temps to be much lower.

BTW I think lifted stepsides are gay, but I think yours actually doesn't look bad at all now. **** I'm jealous of your wheel/tire combo.

I agree with Steve in one sense because it's not as not and dry as 31s=4.10s, 33s=4.54s, 35s=4.88s. It really depends on what type of driving you do. For me when I switch to 4.10s my city mileage went up but my highway mileage went down. That's great for me since I do almost all city, that sucks for someone who commutes to work everyday on the highway.

On the other hand those honkin' tires on an auto and 4.10s is killing your drivetrain right now. I mean your torque converter is getting a lot of extra use.

I know you are superchipped but a tuner wouldn't hurt either that way you could set your truck up for towing when you need it or economy when you don't.

Well since ive had the truck I have seen a need to spend the thousand dollars on gears cause it works and does everything I need wonderfully. It's weird I know. Re-gearing may or may not happen. Btw korey it must be nice to only have to re-gear one diff........and thanks for the compliment means alot coming from you but I agree steppys are lame I'd swap for a regular bed anytime.

Drives almost the same as with the 35's honestly. Hilly country roads is what we have here and it hasn't created a problem in the 4 years/70k I've had the truck.

And I have a tuner btw it's just a superchips that has economy/performance/towing
