    I have recived alot of tips from othere members, and one thing that was pointed out to me was to make sure the axle ratio's where the same, well the ratio on the truck now is 4.10:1, but I did have a set the where from a 3/4ton 4X4 "I think a 75, or 6" but thay are 4.56:1, what would happen if this set was used, would the truck be slower, or faster? ?would it move slow but climb any hill?

    As long as you have both front and rear axles with 4.56's you will be geared to go slower unless you put bigger tires on it (say 33"s to 37"s would be about the same percent increase as 4.10 to 4.56).
