Should I regear to 4.10
Ok so here is the spill; I have a zone offroad 4" lift coming on Monday and I want to put 33's on my 4x4 6.0 excursion. There is a lot of talk about rehearing if you go to bigger tires.
I did the math to reconfigure appropriate gear ratio ( bigger size tire divided by old size tire multiplied by current gear ratio= desired gear ratio).
Stock tires are 31.5 inches , the tires I want to put on are 33's and my current gear ratio is stOck 3.73 which gives me a new ratio of 3.9
Here is my question(s)
1. Since 3.9 ratio is smack dab in the middle of 3.73 and 4.10 do I need to regear to 4.10 to keep the same power and fuel economy I have now or does it make a difference.
2. Will the bigger tire cause my transmission to prematurely wear?
3. Does anyone have pictures of their excursion with a lift and 33" tires so I can get an estimate on what mine might look like after said lift?
I will submit before and after pics of mine when it is done this weekend!
Thanks In Advance
