    Will a 700R4/NP208 do well as a daily driver with 31x10.5 and a 4.10? Would 4.56 be a better ratio? I am going swap my 31's on for daily driving and then swap the 35's on for weekend fun. I am trying to determine a good functioning ratio for daily stuff on the new project rig while keeping OD.

    4.10s will be fine, UNLESS you decide to stay with 35s, in which case kiss your 700 goodbye, as the 4.10 gears with 35s will bog the engine and burn your tranny outta there. I'm speaking from experience, as thats exactly what happened to me till I went from 4.10s to 4.56s with 35s. If you stay mostly with 31s, keep the 4.10s.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess that will put me with the 4.56. Is this a good ratio to run with 31's, as a daily driver?
