need 4.10s


Recommended Posts

I do not tow alot, but when I do it is 5000 or so plus. I really need 4.10s. 3.42s are nice, but when it comes to pulling and the future plans for bigger tires they just dont cut it. Trading in is not really an option as of now.

 

So heres my question. My buddies and I have swapped gears in our Jeeps. I currently have a 88 cherokee with 4.88s and a rear spool. We did all of this by ourselves with a bearing puller and shop press. We have also done other axles. I know its not the same as with my truck. So far have 10000 on my jeep no problems.

 

How far a a stretch or difference would it be to put 4.10's in my truck. Also my buddy is a dealer for Randys Ring and pinion so we can get the Yukon gears for a good price. Possible or not? Should I just take it in the you know what from the dealer and pay the price? :cheers: I understand this would void the warranty.

 

Also does GM do the 7/70,000 warranty for the drive trian like Dodge does?

 

Thanks guys! :chevy:

Hey there just joined this group and looking forward to chatting with all of you.  I also have a 2005 GMC 1500 crewcab.  I am pulling about 10,000 and am not really having to many problems yet.  I have the 3.43 and am thinking about the 4.10's.  I pull up alot of hills and that is where I am having my problems.  I don't want to be beating up my engin.  I have put new tires (285's), air bags and shocks.  All has helped but has anyone done this and has it helped?

The operation of a locking differential will not be affected by replacing a pinion and a ring gear set. The important part is to adjust the gear backlash correctly by properly shimming the gears. If you do not know how to do this properly, take it to a specialist and have them install it.

We do know how to, its just when we would go from a 3.55 to a 3.73 or larger we could not use the tru trac that I had in. I had to install a spool. If I go from 3.42 to 4.10 will I just need the install kit and the ring and pinions? We have a bearing puller, feeler guage for backlash and a shop press.

Go for the OEM gears, they are quieter for starters although a lot more expensive, but after all you get what you pay for. Might as well only pay once instead of 2 or 3 times. Plus with OEM parts and dealer install ( 2000yr and up have redesigned gears which run a lot tighter along with a different angle to reduce noise and require special tooling to set up ) you dont void the warranty and ruin the resale value.

The OEM gears is a great idea BUT i just priced a Ring and Pinion set for my 2006 Sierra to go from a 3.23 to a 3.73 and they quoted me $1100 for JUST THE RING AND PINION SET, :banghead: Thats just ridiculous plus the dealer wants almost $600 for the install and mine is a 2WD

Folgers, Are you really pulling 10K with your 1500? Is it an HD?
