Gear swap

Recommended Posts

Looking to possible regear my 2017 GMC 1500 4x4 running 35" tires.  Currently it has 3.42 gears getting between 14 and 17.5 mpg. If I read the charts correctly, I should be running 4.10 gears to get back close to OEM settings, since 3.90 is not available for 4x4. Anyone else running 4.10s on a lifted truck?

I’m running 4.56’s with a 7” lift on 35’s. Best money I’ve spent on the truck yet.

What kind of gas mileage you getting?  What year truck and is it a 4x4? What size lift and tires are you running?

I'm very interested in this as well. I'm running a 4" lift with 35" with the factory 3.42 gears. Looking to go with 4.56 gears to help with the downshifting at the slightest hills on the highway. I got quoted $2,800 for front and rear gear swap to Yukon. Just waiting to save up the funds.

Well worth the money. I paid $2250 for the swap and used Yukon gears.

Do you add a locker?

4.56's are no doubt the best way to go. The average cost I have seen is $2500 to be done. Now, I refuse to pay that so I just did it myself and saved the $1500.

Does the gear swap delete the G80 locker? Or you just mean put a REAL locker in it?

yeah I'm talking about guys with the rear peg legger.  seen so many vids on YT about locker installs on the open diff carriers on trucks , its the easiest part to install for traction. as long as you dont hit the throttle on a  hard turn they are decent mods for simple traction   

 

there are a couple flywheel mods for the G80 gov lock, you'll have to try those at your own risk. basically it keeps the govlock locked up past 30mph,
