That's the perfect ratio to run with the 4.0L/manual transmission and 35" tires. I ran that combination for years and it was ideal.

nmdriver No less then 4.56 and no more then 4.88

I run 4.56 with my manual 4.0L with 33" A little low but it sure pulls good.

MR.CLIFFORD 4.56 with an auto. 4.88 with a manual.

Reise Ó Fearáin I'm sure you will get one of the uh......"experts" to weigh in on this, but for what it is worth, I run 4:56's on ARB's with a 4.0/auto. 35x13.50x15 tires. Works very well on and off road FOR ME. If did not run the miles I do on road back and forth to job sites, it would be 4:88's.

Gears for 35"

Hello everyone,
I'm sure this has been asked a lot of times but what gears should I get for 35" tires? I know I have 3.73's right now and the hills just can't take em... I plan on getting a Ford 8.8 rear axle from a junkyard for around 80$ and once I get that I was planning on saving up until I have enough for new gears... I was thinking 4.11's?? I'm not so sure about this... (why i'm asking) but i'm just trying to find a cheap way to get up those hills while keeping 35's.


Instead of 4.11's go with 4.56's?? My friend and I plan on putting the gears in so that's not an issue, just which gears are better...
