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?

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

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

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.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

ok, thanks for the insight.
I already knew that was the right answer, just the idiot hot rodder in me like the idea of going faster off the line

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.
