Alot depends on what size tire you are going to run and such. Be a little more specific on what you are going to do with the truck. Do you have a limited slip diff now?? What size tires are you gonna run? Off roading at all?

With 35s you shouldn't need to worry about gears, but maybe look into a locker if you don't have limited slip. If you are running an open differential (only one wheel spins no matter what) you are loosing alot of traction. There are many out there, from 450bucks on up. Maybe you can find one on E-bay for cheaper. Some lockers are better at one thing or another. Some are good for steet use, some are more towards off road use only. Talk to a good 4x4 shop and they can help you decide which one might be best for you. Remember that if you do install new gears with a different ration, make sure you do the front too. Good luck

You will not have to drop the tcase. That shop is full of poo. Your truck probly already has a limited slip which will be fine, and I know for a fact that 3.73 gears are fine with 35inch tires cause thats what I run. You want even have to lengthen the drive shaft.
