    Ok, heres my situation. I live in Arizona, and I want my <font color="green"> </font color> <font color="black"> </font color> <font color="green"> </font color> /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif be able to tackle rocks, desert, and the occasional mud with ease. It is my only truck so it needs to be able to cruise the highway (75 mph) at a reasonable RPM. Right now I'm running stock gears f/r. What do you think.

    first off welcome to ck5 /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    what do you have for gear's now?
    if you plan to stay with 35's i would say 4:10.
    4:56 would really be good but they get to be to much on the highway.
    if you think you might go with a bigger tire go 4:56.

    Wow...that was a quick response. Yes, I'm going to stick to 35's until I get some 3/4t axles to support bigger meats. But that takes a bit of money $$$$$.

    Hey brother- I suggest you use the "search" feature. This subject is covered ad nauseum in the archives.
