    Well I got my 35's last week and today I'm sitting at ECGS getting my truck regeared to 4.56. They seem to be some pretty cool guys down here. They set me up with a desk and some wifi so hopefully by this evening i'll be back on the road again. Can't wait to feel the difference that regearing makes.

    I'm buying everything from them. I was originally just going to bring my diffs down here and just have them regear them and I was going to install but for the difference in price and the headache factor I just decided to let them do all the work so I'll also have a good warranty with it.

    Well Chase just gave me a word of advice. He told me that my gears looked like shit and asked me if I was running synthetic. I told him yes the Redline synthetic that most everyone else was running in their diffs and he told me not to do that again. He told me to run dino perferably Lucus. Said that the gears were wearing like shit. So I learned something new today.

    exciting man!

    I have been kicking this around for a while now. Even with the charger, my truck lost its nuts with the lift/tires.

    Interested to hear how it turns out.... if it feels like it did with stock wheels/tires, etc.

    Also, I notice, even on the highway ... sometimes my traction control light flashes at high RPMs... I want all that to go away.

    Well Chase originally recommend 4.88 but you have to change the front carrier inorder to put the 4.88 gear in. That's $375 for that so he told me that 4.56 would be just fine. Told me that my rpms would change about 700rpm above what they are now on my stock 3.73 for the 4.56 swap and that the 4.88 would only add about 240rpm to that. So long story short the 4.56 will be just fine to turn my 35's.

    Mind posting up a comparison between all stock vs lift/wheels/tires/gears when you get it done.

    Did you have an option for 4.30ish gears? or anything in between 4.11 and 4.56?

    Well I can say that ECGS know's their gears. They had me out of there at 11:30 this morning. Originally I was told it would probably be all day. Now as for the gearing. It pulls really good. At 70mph I'm really close to 2400rpms. Can I say wow!!! From a dead stop it pulls like stock if not better. Riding down the hwy it only downshifts from 5th od to 5th. It has finially stopped going to 4th to make it up the hills on the hwy. Once I calibrate my speedometer with my Hypertec unitl I'll give you guys some mpg's.

    As for the gears our only choice is 4.56, 4.88, 5.29. I think that you would need to have a diff from a 4cylinder for the 4.10.

    I know its impolite, but the same question has been burning in my mind... I will be moving to 35's soon, and I would like to know some real world re-gear prices... I've seen people on TW estimate different amounts, with a large price variation, sometimes up to one thousand USD.
