    Rpms look like they would be a little high with 4.56 gears and a 700R4. What does everyone think about running 4.11
    with a 700r4. Would that be better or worse for my rebuilt and beefed up tranny. My K5 is only a street truck No off
    Roading at all.

    How high is to high ? 4.56's + 700r + 35's = a killer general purpose package. I think a round 2500 rpm @ 75 mph is cool for me. It romps out of the hole purdy good for a tired old motor, pulls the boat, I dig it.

    I'm running 4.10s, 35s and a 700 and it feels very close to stock. the speedo is WAAAAAAAY off now, but, oh well. it all depends on what you're doing.
    Lots of highway driving = 4.10s
    Don't give a crap about gas/ short drives = 4.56
    If you plan on putting even bigger tires in later, just go w/ the 4.56s

    I have 4.56's and 35's and wished I had 4.88's but that is my personal preference. I prefer a little higher RPM to keep the motor in it's "sweet" spot for making passing/towing easier. If you don't offroad and do alot of highway, then 4.11's should be fine for you, as you should have decent out of the hole acceleration and low highway RPM's for better MPG.

    I am running both. In my tow rig I am running a 700r4, 35 BFG AT/KO's and 4.10's. It runs good, but I have a strong 383 moving it!
    In the Blazer I am running a 700r4, 35x15.50x15 TSLs and 4.56's. I like this combo! It has good take off and with OD it brings the RPM's down on the highway..
