Oh and welcome to FTE. You found a great resource here. If you are considering a gear swap, I got quotes from $2,200 to $3,800 to do my 4x4 f250. Mine will be getting 4.30 gears tomorrow.

Open the drivers side door and look at the VIN sticker. Under axle it will say 3L. That's a 3.73 axle. That won't do you any good if it has been changed by a previous owner but I've been finding its...

I personally would pass on that truck. Not my thing and the suspension and fender mods suggest it may have been beat on. The egr delete will not pass smog.

"Don't fear the gear." Love it! I was leaning toward the 4.30 and now I'm more confident about that. I still need to shop around a little more for the install. The one guy who actually returned my...

^^ I'm not concerned with gas mileage. My truck uses diesel. 😁

Seriously though, I would expect my city mileage to stay about the same or maybe even improve a little. The truck rarely gets used...

Thanks for the link. My main concern is deciding which rear end ratio to go with. I'd hate to go through the trouble and expense of the 4.10 and not really gain anything. On the other hand, I don't...

I should add that I talked to a reputable 4x4 shop that would do the swap. He said a 4.30 gear would be too low and suggested a 4.10. Some of the research I did said swapping from 3.73 to 4.10...
