You've finally put that lift that you always wanted on your truck, and you've got some great thirty-five-inch tires to boot. Your rig is sitting pretty, but you definitely notice a reduction in power when you hit the pedal. Alas, you've forgotten to upgrade your gear ratio to match you new tire size, and your truck is still running 2.73 ring and pinions. There is no need to worry, the fine folks at 4 Wheel Parts are available to get the perfect set of gears for your truck today.
Why Do I Need New Gears?
When you put large wheels on your truck without changing the gears accordingly, you are asking your engine to move more wheel with the same amount of turns of the drive shaft. By changing to a lower gear ratio, you are transferring the power from more turns of the drive shaft into fewer turns of the axel than with a higher gear ratio. Lower gears will give you more power per turn and let you crawl and climb up rocks that you couldn't otherwise, or to run though some deep mud and not get stuck. 4 Wheel Parts has a huge selection of ring and pinion gear sets that will have your truck's axels turning exactly the way you want them to in no time.
What Gear Ratio Should I Get?
The right gear ratio depends on what you want to use your truck for. If you are interested in preserving fuel economy, then higher gear ratios are better, if you want the most power possible for rock crawling then lower is better. Choosing the right ring and pinion gears can seem daunting but is made easy with the help of professionals from 4 Wheel Parts. Expert service and quality parts go hand in hand when it comes to 4 Wheel Parts. There is no reason not to go into a location near you or visit 4WheelParts.com to find the best deals on ring and pinion gears.
