    Nice and low. Good to have the low center of gravity with low lift. Yeah, some fender trimming will be in order soon. Looks good.

    I'm gonna be running 4 inchs and 38.5s too, how does it do with the 4.10s? I've got the axles and tires under mine, but am still working on some brake issues. We have amazingly similar drivetrains, TBI to 700r4 to 14bolt/10bolt with 4.10s and 38.5s.

    700r4 and 38.5's, and 4:10's? That'd have to be a dog... Thats 4:56's minimum, if not 4:88's or 5:13's... Go take a peak at the gear calculators...

    Ryoken Dave (AKA dirtyjim) sold me these axles and said they had 4.10s. With me, my girl, and my bestfriend all in the truck it still puts all of use in our seats when i give it gas. I will take a look at the gears and calculate it later today But im pretty sure its 4.10s I dont think he would sell me 3/4 ton axles with 4.56s for 400 bucks.

    BTW love the avatar

    A decent TBI 350 with a 700r4's first gear and torque converter can carry 38's with only 4.10's pretty nicely .

    Not that much different than 3.08s and 33's , or 35's with 3.73's .

    eh, far from optimum imo... 36's and 3:73's is certain death for a 700r4 imo... heck, I run 32's with 3:73's, and would like a little more gear... 4:10's would be good for 33's..

    I know alot get by on 4:10's and 35's, OK.. But I still feel 4:56's and up are more desirable...

    Oh, I'm not doubting it's 4:10's... Not so sure about that 2:73 on the old ones tho, sure it wasn't 3:73's? very common...

    I'd also have to figure with 38's and 4:10's, your rarely gonna see OD... Hope you got a cooler on that tranny....

    And thanks, yeah, I'm digging the MadCat shot... :wink1:
