Re: Axle Ratio? w/33\'s
I went through the same thing several years ago. What I found, that for a 33" tire the 4.11 work very well giving you the optimum for the 5th gear and almost factory specs with the 33's. But as stated above, if you offroad you will like the 4.56's. That's what I went with and they are perfect for offroad, and will work fine for the 35's if you go that way later.
The down side with 4.56 is the 5th gear suffers a little. If your primary driving is done on the highway I would go with the 4.11 gearing. But if you are about 1/2 and 1/2 on the road and off you can't beat the 4.56 gears. I've been happy with mine for 4 years now and gone through several sets and sizes of tires. Even went with an auto,,, great for wheelin but suffers on the road,,, no overdrive [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img].
