    First blazer 71 has 350 v8 35x14.5x15 thornbirds. Weekend toy 50% off road 50% around town. Advice on gears? Many tell me that they would run 4:56 Opinions? Any advice on aftermarket torque converters? Are they worth the investment? Thanks

    If you spend 50% of your time offroad 4.56's would be good. If you do alot of onroad travel above 65mph then without OD the 4.56's will turn a few more RPM then most people like.

    If you plan on highway driving 4.10's, but if you don't do much highway and do 50% offroad I would go 4.56. Thats what I run, but I do have OD.

    do you plan on going bigger than 35? if you do then definately got 4.56, also if its a true 50% offroader then go 4.56, but if you plan on stayin 35" or not going offroad 50% of the time and driving on the highway then i say 4.10
