    What gears should I get with 35's and a v6 5 speed. I would like it for both road and some off roading I was thinking of 4:10's or should I go with something else?

    4.10's suck for 33's with a 3.4 5 spd. Feels like i'm driving my old geo. I have 33's and plan on getting 4.88's i eventually plan on going 35's with the 4.88's. I figure 4.88's will do decent on the road. but for off road I don't know. So i hope to double up my t case around the same time.

    Well I have a 1997. I don't know what it has in it now I'm still trying to figure that out I just got the truck.

    I will go lockers front and rear when I get the gears also just trying to figure out what gears really I'm not going to be wheeling all the time mostly driving it to and from work

    Same exact thing i done. Its a little high with the 33s. It should be about perfect when I step up to 35s.

    I would recomend going through ECGS when you do get gears. They send you pre-built diffs and have a 5 year warranty.

    I have 35's with 488's. Its perfect. I had a locker in the front of one of my other Yotos, & I would never do it again, unless u do an air locker or something u can disengage when u dont need it. I had a Detroit & I couldnt use 4x4 on the road.

    for 35's:eek:? I can understand 33's it would be perfect...but 35's?:confused: That just doesn't seam low enough. Do you recommend staying with 4.10's with 33's?

    when I had my s10 ZR2 it came with 4.10 gears and 31 inch tires. and it did pretty good. but I haven't had any experience with any other gear combos. I just know that the truck feels pretty under powered. but that could also be because my other car is a 500 hp corvette lol.

    I have to correct myself, didn't notice we were in the 1st Gen area haha. 4.88s for the 3.4 and 35s. 4.56 for the newer 4.0 and 35s
