Re: 3.73 or 4.10 in reply to oj, 03-01-2014 19:08:40
I'd say if you drive it empty alot and haul less that 14,000# with a strong diesel and a manual, 3.55 is great. The 1995 F250 Powerstroke 5spd truck has 3.55 gears and I absolutely love them with 235 or 265 16" tires. I'd see the purpose of using 4.10 or 3.73 if using a 6000rpm gas engine, but the Powerstroke rarely gets over 2500rpm when I haul. The neighbor has a 1996 Dodge with the same setup. It works great. I had people telling me I'd kill my clutch and driveline hauling 14,000# without 4.10, but it's got almost 300,000 miles on it now. The 3.55 keeps my engine right at or slighly below the "sweet spot". 1500rpm @ 55mph and 2000rpm @ 70mph. I did haul 18,000# last fall and that was WAY too much to get going with my fast first gear.
