Sounds like you have 4:10's, these trucks only had 4:10's or 3:55's. I have 3:55's and when I had 265's @ 2k I was at 67-68 mph. Now with 35's @ 2k I'm at 73-74 mph.

STurbo90 you can check the door tag for the axle code, or see if there is a tag on the axle itself.

then look at the chart to see what ratio it is,

Automotive What is my Ford rear end ratio, do I have positraction

but with stock tires, in od at 2K & 60mph, I would say you have 4.10 rear.

Farrellmh ok... how do i check the gear ratio. with out taking the cover off?.... i did it on my gmc but its easy to count teeth when you can see them...?

blageurt What is your rear end ratio ? 3:73 , 4:11 ? The transmission has nothing to do with final drive unless you are not engaging the OD.
