    ok i'm having a little decision problems,, first off i'm planning on some 35's in the near future so i want to go with a 4:56 ratio.. i can buy a new set of gears for the front and rear with a limited slip for $875.. OR i can just get a 14BB 6 lug (don't want to buy new rims) with 4:56 in them.. i'm thinking buying the whole new axles would be cheaper and probably stronger but what kind of truck do i look for that's a 6 lug with 4:56's in them?

    You won't find them unless someone has changed the gears. You can look for a 3/4 ton that came equipped with the 6 cyl. They usually had 4:56 gears. Although they would be 8 bolt. You could change the front to the 6 bolt set up and buy some 8 to 6 bolt adapters for the rear from echobit. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
