If you do not plan on getting larger than 33" tires stick with 4.56 otherwise if you are going to go with 35's go with 4.88's.

I have the 2.7 with 33"x12.3" BFG MTs. I have 4.88 gears and I wouldn't have it any other way. 4.56 is good for commuting but if you wanna be a man and tear shit up hardcore go with 4.88s.

I also have a CAI, header, and exhaust - check out my build page below if you want.

I don't mean to thread jack this or repost, but is it bad to regear to say 4.88 if you don't have bigger tires?

it will be about 700-900 per axle (that includes parts and labor). If you can do some of the work yourelf or if you got a hookup, it will be less

i would only recommend it if you are living in the mountains or going up hills all the time or if you doing a lot of four wheel or if your drag racing.
