    I'M NEW TO THIS SPORT AND FULL OF QUESTIONS..SO ONE AT A TIME.
    I CURRENTLY HAVE 3.08 GEARS IN CORP. 10 AND 12's. WOULD I BE SATISFIED WITH 3.73 GEARS FOR MODERATE MUDDING AND OFF-ROAD? I HAVE BOTH 33 and 35x 15
    TIRES. FOR NOW THIS IS ALSO SOMEWHAT OF A DAILY DRIVER. 350c.i. w/ TH350-NP203 PART TIME KIT. ANY ADVICE THAT IS NOT TO CONFUSING TO A BEGINNER THAT LOVES HIS BLAZER WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

    <font color=blue>The 3.73s will work with the 33s, but for the 35s I would go with 4.10s. </font color=blue>

    That's good advice, 4.10's for 35's, 3.73's for 33's. 3.73's will work with the 35's, but it's going to be a little slow off the line.
    4.10's with 35's will give you a 2600 rpm cruise at 65. 3.73's and the same tires will give you a bit under 2400 rpms.
