    Just finished my 1 ton install. Went from 10b/14bff with 4.88's to D60/14bff with 5.13's and I wasnt expecting the gearing to be that much better.But OW MAN its sweet. I can tell a huge difference. If I put it in 2wd low and let off the brakes the rear tires just start spinning on the concrete :eek1:
    Im just happy :D

    I think thats the reason that my gearing is so good, I am running 35's with them :D
    Engine is just a GM crate 350 that I put in about 2 years ago, its a pretty strong motor :D

    I would do some burnouts but my axle wrap is BAD.
