    Im going to replace my corporate 10 & 12 bolts out of my 80 blaze with d44 & 14ff. Going to use mostly for daily driver,
    but need a decent gear ratio for the off-road stuff. Planning on running 35" tires. What would be the most practical gear ratio to install?

    what tranny do you have? overdrive? do you ever plan on going bigger than 35's? if you stay with 35's and dont have overdrive go with 4:10's if you have overdrive go with 4:56's

    id agree with him too. also, if you ever plan on going with higher than 35's, even if yoi dont have overdrive get 4.56. i have 35's and no onverdrive adn 4.88, and its too much. go with 4.56

    I have been very pleased with 4.56s under my rig. I run 35s and a 700 tranny (overdrive). I may suffer some when the 42s go on next month, but that is why I have a 400+ HP motor! Actually, I'll just spend more time in low off road and in Drive on road.
