any on run 4.56 on a 4 banger?

I understand 4.88 is the way to go for a 33" tire. I have a set of axles with 4.56 and lockers sitting in the garage. Currently running stock 4.10 gearing and 33s.

What size tires are you running with the 2.5/4.56 combo if there is anyone out there with it.

Not too many people pay that much to regear so little. I picked up the super 35 and 30 geared and locked for 650.00. Just curious if the banger will still be a dog on the highway when im done.

There's very little difference between the gears at this point so if you got a killer deal with lockers install them and have done fun.

I run a four banger 5 speed on 33s went 4:88s best money ever sornt

I run this setup 4.56 on 33s with an 89 2.5, the atk long block has about 20,000 on it. The last few tanks I've ran 210 miles on 12.9 gallons. That's short trips though. Nothing over 20 miles or 65mph. I use 5th gear all the time. It does accelerate slowly though. It's basically like having the stock 4.10s and 215-235 tires. You'll be good.

I run 33s and 4.56 gearing. It will help but you still won't be a speed demon. Headwinds seem to kill my forward momentum. I would have preferred 4.88s, but I came across a pretty good deal so gearing to 4.56s wasn't too expensive. I agree with Jokerchief if you have a good deal stick with it, but if I was starting from scratch I would go with 4.88s.

Thanks for the replies,I really just want to be able to gain speed in 5th. I know all about wind and inclines when it comes to the 2.5 with the gears/tire set up I have. Hopefully when im done it can pull its own weight. Not too worried about slow acceleration as long as it still climbs in speed.

And yeah the gear set was too good to pass up!
