So if stock manuals are 4.10 gearing then what are autos?

Well...unless your a prerunner or a 4 banger..then could be 3.93 or 4.30 or 4.56..
If they are also 4.10 then how are autos geared lower than manuals?

So a 1st Gen. re-gearing from 4.10 to 4.88 wouldn't be too swell for a manual, but ideal for an auto?

Numerically lower, mechanically higher.

The 1st gen auto's 1st gear is like 2.83ish and the 1st gen manual's is 3.83ish.
The 1st gen auto's last gear is like 0.70ish and the 1st gen manual's is 0.84ish.

That's a huge difference in 1st gears...

If you are running 35's or bigger it would be pretty nice in the manual. Might not be enough for the auto though.

I just want to make sure that an auto (or my manual for that matter) won't have problems when carrying these items:
Front/Rear Plate Bumpers, 33s (won't go bigger), Canopy & a Winch

Edit: If it's gonna be extremely sluggish then I'll plan on re-gearing EVENTUALLY but otherwise will probably keep it how it is

Yeah that sounds like a plan.
I'd buy another truck, but if that day comes (whether mine has to get sold, or it's totaled *knock on wood*)
I'm gonna buy a stock 1st Gen v6 3.4L all the same as mine now & just swap over the tires, armor, interior mods, and whatever else is on the Black Beauty now that I'll want

Well that's assuming you can afford two trucks at the same time..and that it's same year and such to take the bumpers and whatnot..idk. Seems like if your not happy with the truck you have now...sell it and get the one at will make you happy. Just a waste otherwise..and gives you a clean slate to do something's differently. Like would you still get 5100s? Or a mid travel setup? Come on...haha

I can see that we will have to settle this once and for all.

And I don't mean at 11,000 feet with one truck in front of the other on a 2-lane highway either. Equal or near equal weight too.
