    Yes, I do too much highway driving to get 4.88s. I was talking on the CB with some 2nd gen guys on the way back from a wheeling trip, some had 4.88s and one guy had 4.56s. The 4.56 guy and me were getting better highway MPG than the 4.88 guys. I doubt the 4.88s would make up for that in city driving. The 4.56 is still slightly over geared over stock, so if you add in some weight and aero, you're roughly back to stock-ish

    Awesome thanks. I don't do much highway driving, mostly when going on camping trips, I'm usually loaded to the max on those. Sounds like 4.56 will work for me as well.

    Things, stuff, and whatnot.
    4.88 is WAY better off-road though, for what it's worth.

    Sounds like the trade off for how driving isn't worth it.

    Yes!

    Axle gears are pretty insignificant once you add a crawlbox. Just 4.7 gears are an 80% gear reduction over stock compared to a 7% difference in 4.56 vs 4.88. Put it in double low and then it really doesn’t matter. :)

    Not entirely sure how I feel about this mod, considering exactly zero of the ring terminals fit and I had to drill them out.
    Also the boot didn't work at all so I had to hack it up too. Lots of hacking going on here.
