Hey CmRam. Have you considered dropping down to a 30-31" diameter tire instead? Especially if you are lowering your Ram instead of lifting. I would bet you could improve your times a bit better. With the 33" tires, the 3.92's turn them quicker than our 3.55's. It's just the opposite end of regearing. The reason for 3.92's or bigger is because of lifts and running 35's or bigger plus the added weight of the tire and wheel combo. If you go the other direction, say lighter wheel and tire diameter of a 30-31", I'd say you'd be really close to timeslips like the guys running their 33" tires on 3.92 rears. Just the other end of the spectrum.

They are stock 20s with 275/55r20 which are 31.25 in diameter, I measured them when I set my tire size on my sc. It's just crazy because a couple of people have said they have a few less mods same gears and everything running about the same, I actually set everything back to stock later last night and did another 0-60 run just to see what my bolt ins added and ran 7.5 0-60 which I did bone stock

The bolt-ons won't make much difference at all without a tune installed. The factory tune is going to limit fuel and timing, regardless.

I just might switch to diablo sport tuner there's a couple of guys on here that have either fewer mods,bigger truck, or larger whelks and tires running with faster 0-60 times maybe the flashpaq is no comparison and my time was on the 93 tune of course with 93 octane.

Don't forget, if you put a 4:10 gear set in and then go to a larger tire diameter, you don't have a 4:10 ratio anymore. You probably end up with a 3:92 or a 3:73 / 3:55 depending on how much bigger you go in tire diameter.

By the same token if you went to a smaller tire size than your stock 20" tires you'd go from say a 3:55 stock rear end ratio to maybe a 3:92 just by going to a smaller diameter tire. I'm sure there is a formula to calculate it.

Remember if you go to high numerically/low in ratio you'll probably have a lot crappier gas mileage than you have now and an annoying drone on the highway and don't expect to be cruising at high speeds unless you want to watch your gas gauge needle physically move, as your driving.

That sounds about right to me. My truck is stock and I run high 6's 0-60 and because of the weight difference I easily walk away from a QC so you getting 6.8 0-60 is a big improvement IMO.
