    Hey guys, I know there are a few threads discussing the regearing process, but I just need some straight forward answers specific to my situation. I have a 2011 DBL cab Offroad with 325/65R18s and have noticed a serious loss in power and MPGs. I am hoping to regear to get back to the stock power and MPGs. Does anyone know what I should regear to? Has anyone done this with a similar setup? I want to say that my current gear ratio is 4:56 but I could be wrong...Please help!!

    That's a lot of rotational mass. You could try 4.88 but i doubt you would get much difference.

    Your stock gears are 3.73, I would go with 4.56 if you see alot of highway, 4.88 if your more offroad oriented.
