    I'm looking at doing this the best way. I can get a axle with the ratio I want for pretty cheap but it has 6 lugs or I can do one of the following:

    A) stay with the current 8 lug ten bolt and do a gear swap.

    B) get the other axle and do a 8 lug swap (I have to do a knuckle swap anyways since I'm doing crossover)

    C) stay with the current 3.73 and run the 33's and cry evertime you think about the 39.5 I could of had..LMAO

    [/ QUOTE ]Sence you're doing a knuckle swap anyways, sounds like a plan to me.

    Yeah, that sounds like the best route. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
