Question on gearing.

I used the search function but there are so many threads on gearing it was hard to filter through them all so here it goes. Long story short my 06 F-350 has DRW has 430 gears. Way to low for what I need. Not to mention I do a bunch of highway driving back and forth to different race track. I dont think I will ever pull anything over 10000lbs. Im going to go ahead and put the 3:73 gears in it. I can only blame myself for not looking before I bought it a few weeks back.

My question for you all is where is a good place to get the parts.

Thanks in advance.

Scott

Check the sponsors page, I think there is a differentials only business. I got qoutes from him before I went to 4.30's and he was very competitive.

yukon gear, randy's, there are many...look in your local phone book for a reputable local shop.
3.73 would be good, i run them on my FX4 w/35" tires and have no problem, i'm actually thinking of going to a taller gear i have traction problems already.
