4.10's and 35's

Hey guys,

I have the oppertunity to take my buddies 4.10 axles from his dually and put them in my truck.
As far as I know, I can remover the dually spacers and it'll bacically be a direct swap.

FREE

You think its worth it? Think it'll drive better? Or waste of effort?

Also, is there any reason I wouldn't want the Dana 80 vs the Sterling?

you'd run higher rpms on the highway, worse mileage. i think cruising at 70 you'd be 2400-2500 rpms.

but a dana 80 is tough

really up to you bud

With 35's you think it would be that high? I guess i'll leave well enough alone and keep 3.73's

4.10's combined with your truck revving itself at every red light... no one will ever beat you off the line

that's just not right

I've been on 35's and 37's w 3.73's and regearing has never once crossed my mind. I think with a chip they pull pretty hard down low and up high. Do you tow heavy alot ? I would think that would be the only positive reason for doing so , anything over 55-60 mph and your mileage will start to tank.

35's and 4.10's are just like stock tires and 3.73's with that said only if you tow often (8,000#'s +) would I regear.
