ahh honduras i was counting on you. i was thinking on swaping out the 3.73's for 4.10/11 gearing sicne i plan on getting 18 inch wheels. it would also make hualign alot easier.

my 2 considerationg are going and junk picking a 4.10 out of an automatic or ordering 4.11 gears from yukon

lol good.

yeah i think picking an axle is easier and cheapier, since u wont have to pay to get the gears installed.

not all automatics are 4.10's
not all 5 speeds are 3.73's

now i think that you'll only find 4.10's in an automatic, but its not guaranteed to be 4.10's. read through the tech library about door tag codes and axle tags. you'll have to search, probably a lot, to find your 4.10's

and yes, replacing an entire axle is gonna be cheaper and easier than setting up gears. unless you know what you're doing, dont bother even trying.
