Does anybody else hate having 4.10 gears? My truck is so slow and I don't even need them. Ahh! It makes me mad probably once a week when I want to go fast or need to get somewhere:banghead:
Put bigger tires on and your rpms drop and you pick up some highway mileage and speed.
Thats what I thought. Hell with changing gears, I want to put 38's under it! That should help:hehe:I've actually been thinkin of goin to 4.10's to help turn my heavy tires and take some strain off my drive train..
Is it true that the carrier itself is different between a diff with 4.10's and a diff with 3.55's?I had the 4.10's in my 96', I could not stand them too many rpms at 70 mph. I went to Randys Ring and Pinion and bought yukon's 3.54 gears and master rebuild kits for both axles. I want to say it was between 650 and 750 for all of the parts. I alomost wonder if I should have done 3.42's but either way I love the 3.54's over the 4.10's any day
It will keep pulling but I'm afraid of hurting the tranny in od, everything is stock except I slid the stock plate forward and a boost elbow. That's pulling a 4000# camper and a car trailer with a race car.you have to take it out of overdrive with 4.10's??? must be a big load... I've actually been thinkin of goin to 4.10's to help turn my heavy tires and take some strain off my drive train..
