    Just pulled my Diff cover and counted my ring and pinion teeth, came out to 42 ring teeth and 15 pinion teeth. By my calculator thats a 2.8 gear ratio!! What a horrid discovery. Good thing I didn't go to 35s or 37s yet huh? What do you guys think of 4.56s with 37s? Have a 10 bolt 4.56 set for the front and gonna go 12 bolt hunting. Yes I would like to go 1 ton but at the second not puting the $$$ out. Unless I find a 14 bolt pretty cheap.
