I got my 37 x terrains on..... need more power!

Should I gear it? about 4:56?

Or will a Super chips Programmer do the trick?

Definately upgrade to the 4.56s. I myself need to. You have any pics of your truck with the 37s on? Id like to see it.

Edit: Nevermind I found your pics on another post. Looks sick!

If thats the case...Definitly gears...and I'd do it sooner rather than later, your tranny isn't going to like those gears and 37" tires.

theyre stock...I was running 35's before and didnt really need them....

So is 4:56 a good ratio for my set up? I was told the programmer should take care of it...Was that BS? ABS wont work with the 4:56s? Thanx

you NEED gears :read:

i honestly do not get why people put big tires on and leave 3.73s in. its hell on the tranny.

since your truck isnt an offroader, i would consider 4.88s myself. 4.56s will be fine, but 4.88s would be optimal as far as returning your RPMs to the correct power band.

the tuner will not do anything but get your speedometer in the right spot and the tranny to shift at the right time. your tranny will still blow prematurely if you just get a tuner.

and like adam said, your stock gears are either 3.42 or 3.73. most likely they are 3.42's if you have a V8 and no trailer tow package.

i personally have 3.73's with my stock 31 inch tires and i feel that it is UNDER-geared, i think 3.90 or 4.10 would be a much more practical stock gear for 31s :bawl:
