Agree with the above post, and your gearing should be 3.73's.

Roger that. Did a google search and found pics that look like what I have. Oasis said it was 3.73 gearing so your right on the money.

If you want to confirm gearing.... crawl up under there and usually theres a small metal tag that one of the bolts go through with the ratio stamped on it.

Anyone running any of the finned rear covers? Probably isn't a bad idea to run one with extra capacity and have the fins to help cool things off.

There is a chance the gearing has been changed, but if the truck was stock height its unlikely. The tag would show the code for 3.73's anyway.

I have a stock aluminum finned cover on the rear of my DRW '07, so its a different axle. How much towing do you do, you may not see enough of a difference to justify it?

I definitely do not do as much towing as most do with this truck. I will be looking into getting a enclosed trailer next year when i will be transferring. And of course in the future I would like to get some motorcycles and maybe ATV to put in that trailer. But still not a lot of towing. I just noticed the diff cover has some rust scale on the rear and figured I can get a cheaper one with extra capacity for cooling.
