Would it hurt to run a 4:10 rear end with a 3.55 front end. I would lie more power when towing and know my 33s would like the 4.10 better but don't have the money to regear both axles right now. I have herd that as long as both axles are within 20% of each other it's ok. Is this true.

No, that's not true at all. Both axles need to have the same gears in them. You'll have to save up until you can do both. Or if you do only do the back you can't use 4wd until you do the front as well.

That's what I was thinking because to me that would make the front end pull the rear end.
