I've got a 6.2 and 35's whats a good gear ratio for this settup.
On street use 3.43, off road 3.73.
When your trany has an "OD", you can take a 4.11
4.56 and 36s is alot of fun /forums/images/icons/grin.gif no OD either
Ok one. The whole depends on how far the distances on the road are, how fast you want to drive and how sufferable you are...
I run 35's with 3.73's and I love it while driving down the highway. It almost seems like I could do over 100mph in my truck (I said almost....hehe) I HATE it when I try to pull anything or drive in mud and sand. I remember back in the day before the lift and the tires when I hardly ever needed four wheel drive to move through sand and light mud but now...no way. I need 4 wheel drive almost everytime. I'm going to 4.10's very soon.
I drive sometimes with 36in HUMVEE-wheels in the area and must say that this is still acceptable. But I already wish myself more power there. With a TH400 or 350 it is difficult, no matter how you makes it. Either the first gear or the third one is too short. Thus you should decide which is more important. Highwayuse or the fun in the mud.
