I'm running 35s right now, and I have the same engine as you. I'm going to regear in a few weeks, tho. 4.10s in the rear.

Your just going to 4.10s with 35"s? Why not move up to the next size and get a lot more power back?

4.10, 8.8 will be enough for now. Until I get the 225 for 4.88s.

i think he thought you mean you are going to upgrade to 4.10's, like you have 3.73 now. and im guessing you have the 4.10 in your 8.8 stock

4.10s just seem like a low gear for 35"s I have 4.10s stock on my 3.0 and just going up to 32"s it slowed it down.

I've got the 4.10 axle waiting. I'm buying the 4.88s after I try out the 4.10s. I have the baby gears in my rear axle right now. I'm not a rich kid... so I have to save up to do stuff.
