Love my regear!

Finally did it! My ride has a 5 speed manual with stock D35 and a 30 with 307 gears. I gathered up all my items needed for an 8.8 swap with 4.10's. And all I can say is OMG!!!! Just doing the regear alone woke this beast up. I mean it's like driving a whole different vehicle. I cant wait to see what the limited slip 8.8 will do for me. I added a cable pull for my front axel so now it's time to buy some sort of locker for the front.

Very nice. I re geared my truck to 4:56's & it was like night & day with 35" tires. Money well spent in my book.

Have fun with it.

4.10's are good but for 33 inch tires you should have gone to 4.56 with the manual 5 speed and 4.88 for 35 inch tires. Just sayin.

I couldn't imagine 4.56's..or even 4.88's. I'm in 5th gear now when I hit 45 mph.. All I know is that these 4.10's really woke this thing up!! Now trying to decide on a locker for the front.

If you are looking for a automatic lunch box style I run a Lock Rite and some others run an Aussie, either one works great for these size tires.
