    I´m trying to figure out which gear ratio to choose for my -05 dc. After lifting 2,5"and putting on 33" tires the gasolin consumption has increased alot! After looking in old threads about this subject, it seems that 4.56 and 4.88 are the most common ratios with similar setups. I live in a fairly big city with much traffic i.e lot´s of start´s and stops, accelaration between the stop light´s etc. And when i´m not stuck in traffic I use it for offroading also, so....with my setup etc, what would be a good gear ratio to choose? Any input is welcome!
