    front diff leaked all its fluid out so locked up on me last week during the icey weather, front gears are destroyed. running 35" x terrains right now might as well buy the gears I need for these tires. Use my truck as my daily driver so needs to be good for lots of highway driving too. Seen alot of people talk about 4.88 but really dont know anything about gear ratios and what the different sizes would be best for. Which gears would yall recommend?

    4.88 would do pretty good.

    edit: 4.88's would put you back at factory ratio for stock size tires.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    Just get 5:13's and get over it. You'll always want a lower ratio IMO
