This thread looks pretty played out, so I decided to whip up a new one.

http://www.dodgetalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55419

I'm debating on whether to get 4.56 or 4.88 gears. I did some math and here's what I would get:

At 2000RPM, here are my MPH
3.91 = 72 MPH
4.56 = 62 MPH
4.88 = 58 MPH

I drive mostly city miles (75% of my driving) at about 40MPH. I do drive on the highway at 80 MPH. Here's what my RPMS would be

3.91 = 2200 RPM
4.56 = 2580 RPM
4.88 = 2750 RPM

I'm kinda leaning toward the 4.88. I could really shear the rear lugs off with those!

Give me your opinions guys! (Yes, it does seem strange putting 4.88s in a 2WD).

Honestly.... the 4.88 would be almost perfect for a full out .25 run... but you would have traction problems. The only way I would go with the 4.88's is if I had a 35"+ tall tire.... if you have the 32's like most people do... then the 4.56's would be more than enough.

Don't I wish! I'd have an SRT10 if I was a baller.

What is the best manufacturer of 4.56 gears for the RAM 4x2 and where can I get them?

My 4.56s with 295/45/20 (30.4") tires is a 4.80 final ratio. Dunno if you would slowdown or not.

Did you figure in your OVERDIVE into that equation....

4.80 / .67 = 3.21

3.21 is your overal final ratio.... And thats a HIGHWAY gear!
