    I have the factory 4:10's and going to 37 inch tires. I had 33's and the gearing was good. What should I be expecting with these gears and tire sizes. Eventually when I upgrade the axles I plan on going to 5:13's or 5:38's. Does anyone run this gear ratio with this tire size. I am just wondering what it will be like on the trails. I would just put them on and see but I am still out of country until mid May so this is really got me thinking. Any help would be great.

    I have 38's and 4:10's and would definately like more gear... especially with the 2:1 low ratio in my 205.

    My high-stall converter makes up for it a little bit though....

    I'm running 37's and 4.56's and I think it is too low. Not that I am going to switch to 4.10's, but I will not switch when I go to 42's. Also, I have a 465 so no overdrive for me.

    Keep in mind that if you have overdrive or not makes a big difference in which gear you need.

    I run the 700r4

    I hope that 410 wont be to bad. As I said I liked the gearing with 33's but going to 37's might be too much.

    Bingo, I have 4.10's with 37's and it is about the right mix for me (TH350 = no OD). I can do 70 on the freeway and still move in town (it is not going to win any races though). I am going to try and run my 40's on the 4.10's too. Might change to 4.56 but who knows.

    My concern is not the road at all. My truck rarely hits the road. My concern is offroad. How does this gear/tire setup work.

    I think Jerry(JK5) is having ISP problems. But he was running 38's with 4.10's in 1 tons. He had a th350 and he seemed to like it. He is still running the same gears and 44's now... One thing that helps him though is he has a ZZ4... So he has good power! THis is all with a single 205.

    If you're going offroad then just get the 5.13's unless you're doing high speed desert racing. (and I don't think you are if I do recall you want to do some rock/trail/mud)
