    Money is tight right now, so I may have to stay with the 12 bolt / D-44 combo for a while. My question is, will 373 gears with 35 or 36 inch tires work ???? I don't want it to be doggy, but I also don't want to over rev my engine out on the interstate. What do you think ????

    I think over-all it wont be too bad at all. I ran 3.73 with 35 for a few years and didnt think it was too bad.

    I ran that combination for a while, it seemed to be a happy medium for me, the ratio was low enough for trail riding and mud slinging but not too low to hit the interstate.
