The general consensus is that if you plan to go no larger than 33", and aren't planning to add a bunch of weight, that 4.88's are the way to go. That said I think the factory manual transmission is a 4.10 so it's not much of a huge difference. I have heard of plenty of people going straight to 5.29 on near factory setups and being very pleased.
I just had a callback from my shop, they said my truck is ready for pickup. So tomorrow I'll get to drive it for the first time with 5.29's. ?
i am planning to re gear, still haven't decided on either 4.88 or 5.29..How do you like the 5.29? I'm running 33's with just rock sliders and skid plate really as far as added weight.
With your setup, if you do a lot of highway, I'd maybe stay with the 4.88's. BUT, only if you don't plan to increase your weight any more than you're already at. If your going to raise your weight any more, go 5.29.
Is this a phone app? Whats it called ? Where can i find it?
Yes. OBD Fusion
Thanks for the info!@UploadAdventure is correct. The app is OBDFusion and I'm a fan of it. Definitely worth looking into.
You'll also need an OBD connection module. I ordered mine off Amazon.
