4.56 Gears
Just wanted to get some opinions on the pros and cons of switching my stock gears for 4.56 gears on my 05 HEMI QC 1500 4x4 next uprgrdae will be adding some 35in 12.50s i pull a 21ft ski boat routinely and was told if i go with those tires and that load ill wear my motor out trying to get to 60mph

well you would definitely be running higher rpms than with 4.11s
most people use 4.56 in Jeeps for off highway driving, or for the drag strip

Yeah from what I've been able to gather adding the 4.56 gears will help keep my truck in the higher torque band making it easier to pull the boat with that size tires

4.56s will be idea for your situation. I think you should get them!

TheSatinPumpkin 07-04-2011 08:37 PM

4.56 all the way.
Cons would be price considering you would need to do both axles.

Don't Fear The Gear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
