Is this on your `89 in the signature? How much highway, how much wheeling? No overdrive in `89, correct?

When i get around to it after the lift is done and the tires are on, I"m going to be regearing to 4:10s with the 35's I'll have because of the highway driving I do daily.

With 35's and alot of highway miles I'd do 4.10's, if your going to `wheel it go for the 4.56's(that's as low as the 9 1/4 can go).

Would 4.10/4.11 be good gearing for 33'' tires that see half highway half city(very hilly) and sum mud?
I have 33's with 3.90's. I do run on the freeway alot at 65+ and these gears do good for that. But, if I was going to be driving around town a lot, or I lived in a hilly area ( Phoenix is preaty much flat ), I'd go with 4.10's.

yes, it is the same, and yes no overdrive. Highway not that much, and wheeling not that much but when i get the tires and whatever else i'll be wheelin' like no other....

if you're looking for gears try randy's ring and pinion, they are really good folks and a lot of people swear by the quality their gears (yukon brand)

randys ring and pinion website should have the conversion computer to show what rpm youll be turning. ;)

My $.02 worth is 410s with the 35s. However, be ready for a decent reduction in gas mileage though. You should try to limit your highway speed to 60-65. With 410 gears, higher speeds will really drive the engine RPMs up. Also, since you will be pulling open the pumpkins to put in new gearsets (and say you want the lower gearing for serious off-roading), this would be a good time to upgrade your differentials too. You may want to look at lockers or Limited Slip Differentials. I run Auburn Gear LSDs front and rear and am real happy with them. I would have gone with a locker in the rear (Detroit Locker) but apparently, there was not one made for my RC (76).

Dam them round tuits anyway,, dont wait for your round tuit before doing the gears,, or get the round tuit when you buy the lift and tires so there will be no delays when it comes to doing the gear swap or you will kill your tranny very quickly

i highly reccomend that you use factory gears in a ramcharger. if you dont the noise will drive you nuts. Randy's will also say the same.
