Gear it to 4.56 and you won't be thinking about dumping 3k into the truck only to have it pop the bottom end out of it....

sounds about right for a drive-in, drive-out install.



Cheap way would be hitting up a junkyard and nabbing some 4.10 axles. Rear is easy to find. Front will be harder since not alot of TTB trucks were 4.10 from the factory....may have to get the front geared but not the back. Save ya alot of money and it'll drive alot better. 3.0, 33x12.50's, manual, 3.73s = total dog....way doggier than a 3.0 in stock form that's already a total dog to begin with.
