d60 gear chunk

d60 came with a 4.10 chunk and the stock is all 3.55

you guys suggest gettin a 3.55 front or switching the back to 4.10?
wouldn't ever run tires bigger than 35's
don't do any towing

If I didn't tow, I think I'd want the 3.55 all the way around. I think a richmond r&p would be fine for the limited use of the front axle, so that'd be the cheaper option.

D50 gears won't work - too small.

I have 4.10 in my truck with 35s. I like it that way. Any taller and I would suffer the odd time I haul 2 tons of gravel/dirt/etc. 4.10s just suck if/when I have to go back to stock tires.

I bet you could find a whole used 4.10 rear end for less than a set of gears for the front. Maybe take it as an opportunity to stick a locker in the back too. ;)

Ratio is determined by dividing the gear tooth count by the pinion tooth count.

39/11=3.54545454545454 etc.

One manufacturer rounds up (3.55), the other rounds down (3.54). This is very common.

D50 and D60 are not compatible. The D50 has a smaller diameter ring gear and smaller pinion.
