what about 4.10's

The higher the gear obviously the higher the rpm on the interstate and in turn, worse gas mpg. I don't know the rpm on 4.10's, but just imagine higher. I my opinion, 4.10's are too big for the street.

So a 3.55 or a 3.73 would be ideal?

So 4.10's are ideal?? Thats what I was looking into but everyones saying thats to big??? I would like to be running right around were your at.It has power on the highway as well as good city. When you get some punk in his rice burner who wants to run, and he thinks you got nothing on him cause he has a coffe can on the back on his POS.
