Regear the rear

Hey guys. I have 3.55 gears in my f350 Psd. I'm curious as to what us involved in putting 4.10 in it. Thanks

Is it more difficult to regear rather than swap axles?

Swapping axles isn't too hard, just unbolting the old and bolting up the new!

Regearing requires special tools and knowledge of how to set the ring and pinion up correctly so that they will last.

The price difference depends on how good of a deal you can find on used axles, regearing a 4x4 usually costs between $1500-$2000.

i would think that regearing is easier IF you know what you are doing and have the tools. I am also the anal retentive type who will rebuild an axle before i swap it in.
