I planned to switch from 3.73 to 4.10 this winter but since i jus did the six speed swap i dont need to; the gearing is plenty low. I bought the gears from ringpinion.com, the front is dana 60 reverse made by yukon. The rear is 10.25/10.50 made by motive. I also have the front and rear master install kits with all the bearings etc. I will ship them but know they are fairly heavy, and im not seperating everything. Asking 700 plus shipping, i paid close to 800. Any ?s jus post thx.

With 4.10s and 37"s you shouldn't notice that big a diff in MPG. There will be less driveline stress and you might feel a power gain in the low end take-off TQ.

What made you choose the Motive gear instead of Yukon for the rear axle?
the motive was about the same price as the yukon front was and i had a budget. the yukonr ear was really expensive a i didn feel it was necessary.

it wll improve your city mileage a lot but your highway may decrease a little depends on how fast you like to cruise and your tire size. I was going o use them with 37 or 35 either would be a great improvement over the stockers

Unless you run 80mph+ on the freeway, lower gears will help your highway mileage too. With 37" tires, 4.30 gears would put you back to the stock overall ratio which was designed for 65-75 mph. I have 4.30s with 35s now and plan to get 37s next.

I know this is lower than what you're asking but would you do $500 shipped to 95008?
