I've run 4.10s on 35s and hated every minute of it..


your not thinking about your clutch or tranny temp (not sure what trans you have) lower gears will keep an auto from working as hard and burning up, same with the clutch, its gonna love you for lower gears.

I'm STILL calling bs..

and you have yet to produce a video..


my buddy runs 36" TSLs on his Comanche with chromo's in the D30, but he's not terribly hard on it.
-He has 3 sets of spare shafts which he's swapping on a regular basis.
