    Im building up my blazer and I come across a good deal on a pair of axles out of a 84 diesel burb with 3:73 gears. My question is how many rpms is the engine going to run in drive with 35 inch bfg muds on. Is the engine going to lug or cruise along, let me know thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I have 35's, th400 and 4.10's. Pretty close to 3.73's. Mine runs just fine. Doesn't lug, cruises well at highway speeds. Had 3.08's before and I needed an appointment to leave a stop light.
