    I'm going to get some 5.13's here soon and was wondering if I should get thick gears and run a 4.10 down Detroit or standard gears and a 4.56 up Detroit? The reason I ask is I may not put the Detroit in for a while.

    Kyle,
    is it a regular rotation D60 (GM, Dodge)?
    If it is...I don't think they make thick gears for these.
    If its a Ford HP D60, nevermind.

    It's a GM. So I have to change carrier or get the Detroit now to run 5.13's?
