    just a word of caution for folks, spend some time on your favorite gear calculators and try to get back as close to stock as you can, unless your truck is primarily for off road.

    i went too tall with my last 4x4 (4.56:1 and 32" BFG MTs) on a Cherokee Classic (XJ)

    this was the primary factor in my mileage dropping way off on the highway (other factors like weight, mud tires, blah blah blah) but the tall gears were a dream on the trail.... i got to the point of poor returns for the $$ pretty quick since going to 35" tires would have called for a front axle swap (that particular vehicle has a D35 front axle weak point, and the rear axles weren't all that great, but mine had the 8.25)

    doing gears gets real expensive, but it's worth it if you get it set up right, IMHO

    the only people that are going to have a gear for a 2011 is yukon.they said the 4.56 would be ready in a month or so.im not going to run 35s so this is the only option for a 2011 with the smaller clamshell in the new front diff.
