That's why you're wanting to re-gear???

Did you disable traction control?

I do so much miss my Charger R/T. I just figured that since the tires will not lay em down on the road that the rear end gears are cheap and crap. I turn off traction control evertime I start the truck . That **** it useless.. I learned how to drive without it, so I def don't need it now..

43 to be exact dick weed? Don't come in here and ruin my thread. I am asking some serious questions here. Unless you can answer them screw off. We have enough of your kind around here. Full of mouth and nothing to offer as a solution.

You're going to need to figure out what gearing you have now. And what engine? If you are doing this for towing purposes (often and heavy), I'd guess 3.73 would be good with these 6 speed trannys. Much deeper and you'll suffer fuel economy terribly. If you're are just looking to lay some rubber down, I would look at a tune or other power adder before an expensive regear. Also just a heads up, buy your new gears through the shop that is going to be installing them. You may find them cheaper somewhere else, but if you have any issues, they may fight any warranty claim. Yukon is the brand I've always used, never had any issues.

Thanks for the input. I was looking for a tuner then not so much having to install new gears. A gift for you my good man..

I am wanting to do the same thing. I have the 5.0 with 3.55 rear end and I know exactly what you mean. I have done a ton of reading and question asking on this particular subject. The general response from all of the folks that I consider to know what they are talking about suggest 4.10 gears. If you have 3.55 now, the jump to 3.73 will not be noticeable enough and you will feel like you have wasted your money. At least that's what I have gathered so far. I have a full size truck and I am not concerned with getting 24 mpg's out of it. I want my truck to pull hard. Therefore, I have decided to go with 4.10's. Good luck with your search.....

Im with sean1980! I have a 13' f150 with ecoboost and ive got 35's and plan on going to 37's. So my jump is going up to 4.11's from randys ring and pinion. After tax its about $2000 front and back installed. I dont agree with people saying your gas mileage will suffer unless your changing the gears on a stock truck. Ive seen a guy with 37's install 4.88's and actually gain 3-4 mpg back!
