Hey everyone, I just dropped my truck off earlier today to get the gears installed along with the detroit tru trac... I ended up getting the 5.13's for my 1/2ton Chevy. I just wanted to let yall know and also I will update on how it feels once I get it back! Also, I talked to the guy thats doin the truck and he is gonna let me wathc a little bit, so I can get a feel for things with swapin gears... so hopefully he will call me tommorrow so I can go over there and check the progress out. :bowtie:

Dang dude, you are getting smarter?!!? reasonable size tires AND good gears for the tires?!?!?

ok, enough sarcasm...5.13s are perfect for teh 37-38" range tires. Don't expect to drive 85, but you SHOULDN'T be driving 85 on 38s anyway how i see it.

yeah... im really excited guys, i cant wait to have my power back! Also, like I've said before, the fastest I would ever really go would be probably 75.. but most likely I will set her at 70 and be done with it... no downshifting, and plenty of passing power if I step on it! I cant wait!
