Corey, on pg 9 of this thread, you were working on the differentials. Did I understand your report correctly in that you're using the stock 4.10 gearing for the 35's you're using?
I run 33's on mine. After doing the math, I came up with a gear ratio of 5.01 to fool the drive train into thinking it was still turning the stock 27" tires that originally came on my truck when I bought it new. If this gear set were actually available, the truck would accelerate as it did stock and both the speedometer and odometer would once again read true and fuel mileage should also increase. In reality, only 4.88 and 5.29 gear ratio's are the only viable choices available. The 4.88 gears are spot on for spinning a set of 32's whereas the 5.29 set are much better suited to turn 35's; 34.84's to be exact.
So why aren't you using 5.29 gearing? Strength shouldn't be an issue with that ratio. 4.10's are just way too high a gear for running 35's in my opinion. I also didn't see any mention of positraction units although I may have missed something somewhere. I like how you compensated for the use of lifting blocks between the springs and axle housing by fabricating the shock setup to help prevent spring wrap.
Here are two big thumbs up for an excellent build and for sharing it with all of us! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
