I think for the gear ratios is: If you are concerned with highway fuel economy then go with the 3.31, If you are mainly doing in town or off road then go with the 3.73

You should already be used to the 3.31 combo with mileage and towing etc, and I dont think you would be hurting too much with going to the 3.73 especially if you have upped a size or two on tires or are planning to.

Overall the 3.73 will give you a slight edge in power, and towing but you will lose a little bit of economy on the highway I doubt you would lose more than 1MPG. You might actually gain a little bit if you do a lot of city or lower speed driving. If it was mine I would go with the 3.73 for sure.

My motto: Be nice, be polite, but have have a plan to kill everyone that you meet.

"quote from tank"
"I use baby wipes.....


Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...


...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...


" thank you tank for that insightful thought

Ya ever sense I did the swap to 3.73 the front drive shaft has been in the back seat I am going to be selling the truck so I think I will probabaly end up switching back to 3.31 just becase it wold be the easyest to do becase I wold just swap the whole rear end out
