With 37s probly 4:56s with an auburn lsd. Im running 35s with the stock 3:73s and as you know you dont feel much loss of power. You can stick with the stock gears but everbody I know with 37s and 38s that swiched to 4:56s say its well worth the money.

I would not sugest 4wheel parts for any thing. Check with some of the vendors on here im shure some one can steer you in the right direction. Personaly try Yucon gear thay are in most of the 4x4 mags.

Ok Gear wise, 4.30's, remember you cant compare gas and diesel gear ratio's, 37's need 4.30's perfer, if you get 38's and above then do 4.56's. Also I run 37's and I still haul *** shouldnt notice that much of a difference. but thats me.

Diesel vs gas realy does not make a difference. The gears keep the motor in its power band. Look on some of the 4x4 mag web sites there is a formula to find the correct gear. Try yucongear.com.

For 37s, you will want to go with 4.30s without a doubt.

If you were to tow really heavy 12k+ I'd say 4.56s, but they will also net you worse mpg unloaded on the highway.


As for gears, call up Reider Racing.
Not sure what all is available aftermarket for 4.30s....you may have to go OEM.
If you go aftermarket, Precision Gear is the only brand I would run.....that is what I run.
