    I just put on a 6 inch Fabtech lift with the dirt logic suspension and slapped on some 35x12.5x18 mounted on 18' KMC Misfits and I need to gear down my axles. I just don't know what gearing to go. I have the stock 2006 double cab short bed 4.0 liter six speed with 3.88 gearing I think. Anyone have any ideas??

    You have 3.73 gearing, so I would consider 4.56..

    Running 315s I went with 4.56s for a closer to stock ratio. If you buy thirds and swap them yourself ~1500

    Probably about the cheapest you're gonna get.

    No 5.29s available for the 4x4 trucks. 4.88 are the lowest available. 5.29 would suck gas on the highway anyway.

    I'm thinking about doing the same to mine. I've pretty much the same set up and 4.56 gears would be nice :)

    I have the AC 6 speed.. I'm thinking about doing a 3 inch and 33's. So y'all would suggest 410's for me? Will it help my mpg's after going with bigger tires?
