Default Diablo Intune and gear sizes.

So I was wondering if the Diablo Intune would work with my 08 Ram, is it worth it, and what everyone thinks about it in there truck? Also how was the installation for it.

And on a side note.. How would I be able to tell the gear sizes in my truck..
And what would be the best to run as I am planning to get 35's come the summer.
And my final question What would be the price for different gears?

Sorry for all the questions.. just this forum has cursed me to keep wanting to mod.

Check this thread out and you can get your build sheet and see what gears you have in your truck. You will actually get your build sheet as to how your truck rolled off of the line. How Is My Truck Equipped? If you are wanting to get bigger tires I think you would want at least 3.92's but if you have to change gears think about going 4.10's. As for cost I am not sure it is something I have thought about but haven't done a ton of research on it as I don't have the money to do it but it will depend on what manufacturer of the gears you are going to go with and then what the shop will charge you.

if your gona run 35's, go straight to 4.56's, if you have 3.92's now than 4.10's are too small a difference to justify the cost..

Would the jump to the 4.56's be a noticeable difference with the truck?

3.55's to 4.10's is a good jump...but if he knows he's going to 35's, go straight to 4.56's...

I have 3.55's and have considered bigger tires but nothing extreme and would probably go 4.10. But would put it out here for more advice as to what others with more experience think would best suit what I need out of it.
