Usually the trucks come with 3.73 and people put on larger tires like a 33" tire and change to a 4.11 or so. Go with a 35" or 36" and go with 4.56. 38-40" and go with a 4.88.

I can only assume maybe someone would do it for just a hauling truck. The U-Haul trucks have smaller tires on them and with that I can see a 3.55 gear. Besides that I doubt anyone would.

Going to do mine in the next few weeks. 4.56 ratio


I'm with Twisted, why the 3.55 ratio? Better mileage? Do you tow? Tell us what you want to do with the truck.

For that minor of a change, it will take forever to brake even on the cost. I would just add a taller narrow tire.

It would tow like garbage if you ask me, total mismatch. What would tow haul do? It would wind it up but the 3.55 wouldn't allow the torque to get to the tires. Going up hills you would lug it and downshift more often. The reason why nobody has done it is because it is really dumb, sorry but it is.

BTW 3.55 to 1 is a smaller ratio then 3.73 to 1.

if you had a five speed would that be close to the final ratio of a six speed?
