Looking to re gear my 2018 Ram 6.4 from 4:10

To 4:88 or 5:13

Will likely swap the stock 33’s to 34.5’s

Opinions suggestions.

This is something we do all the time, but Irwindale is a bit far from you.

There are shops out your way. Someone should post up shortly.

Call Martine. He does it for several shops in the IE. He is mobile.

Anyone heard of inland Jeep? They are sounding pretty reasonable.

While I’m still considering the re gear (aka saving money and contemplating ratio to go with)
I decided to toss on a 2” spacer kit and some 285/75/18 Falken AT. As well as Air Lift helper bags

Tri county gear. He did my dodge. Been around in the off-road scene forever.

Do you remember what he charged you? I’m getting prices from $1500 to almost $4000. Most in the 2200-2600 range.
I’m thinking 4:88 but maybe 5:13

That hub kit is a serious investment sheesh.
Worth every penny. My truck is a stick shift, and has a super high reverse speed. I needed to be able to put the truck in four low two wheel drive, to back a fifth wheel into places, and not slip the clutch. Plus you don’t have the front diff turning and output bearing on the transfer case turning all the time, so less wear and tear on those parts, and better fuel economy.

That looks pretty good now with the spacer and tires.
Thanks. Wife says steps are next after I get the gears. I was at a stop light the other day next to a older Chevy 2500 that had a 6” lift and I was allot taller with my little 2” level.
