    What do you use the truck for? DO you ever plan to upgrade to larger tires? What is the ACTUAL tire height measurement of the tires you are running while on your rig?

    4.10s might be better for higher speed driving,but,4.56 and OD should let you run 60-70 MPH with no probs. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The tires are sized at 35, but more than likely they are around 34" actually or even shorter, depending on manufacturer. However, for your usage, I don't think that is much of an issue. I would go with the 4.56's for the best all-around performance. 4.56's will give you good acceleration with the low first of the 700, but the overdrive will keep the highway RPM's manageable. Good all-around combo with a 700, 35's, and 4.56's for your application. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I run 60-70 no problem with 4.56's, 32's (actually about 30.5-31") and OD. I really like the 4.56's. I will like them a little more when I get some 35's, but it is still ok with 32's.

    I run 4.56's and 36's with a 700r4. I dont have a tach, but I run about 70 on the highway with no problems. I would definatenly recommend the 4.56's.

    id say with an OD u would want to run 4.56 to 1 gears.im going 4.10 with 35's but i have no overdrive so it will give me a better highway final ratio.
