Not entirely true. 4.10's will fit in to the stock diff without any machining. 4.56's will not. But either way, you still have to get a front diff from a 2011...

for the gear , the problem is for the rear you have the zf carrier and axle , on the front you have a zf front and the gear is soldered on the carrier, so for the rear diff, you have to machine the after market gear 12 bolt ( bigger bolt on the zf carrier than the 9.25 chrysler ) and for the front end , you hae to swap the entire carrier and possibly both axle for a 2011 or older, on the 3.92 it is not that bad but on the 4.56 it is way different ! hope this help

nice trk man, I miss my black one. From what Ive read, 4.10s will do nothing for you, definitely go 4.56, and you can run bigger tires in the future.

What he said.....^^^

4.56 at the minimum and at this point, that is the highest (numerically) we can go.
If there was 4.88 option, that is the route I would have went with my '12

But if your front diff axle is the same as the '12, as I dont see if being different, you will require another front diff axle from a '10/'11 as the gear is welded in.
THis is assuming you have a 4wd truck.
The rear will require machining to get the gear in place.
Not an easy task, but definitely worth it.

I lasted on my 37's and 3.55 (you are far better off than I was) 2 weeks before swapping the gears.
This is my first truck and was new to the whole gear changes as well.

Great looking truck
The rears would be easier for the 4.10's as there is no machining but the parts will cost the same as getting it machined for aftermarket 4.56, but you will still require a new from diff axle...1) there is no factory 4.10's 2) you'll still require to go aftermarket and therefore might as well go as low (numerically higher) in gears as possible to still enjoy your ride.
But 3.92 is much better than 3.55 but I can still imagine your dismay

They are definitely Nitto Trail Grapplers and if they are 37's, they are 37x12.5x20 and spacers....? Good question...

Spend your money on a Ripp supercharger, you will be happier.

Although this is somewhat true, you'll only be masking the issue and can still run into problems having your truck think it can lug those 37's around.

Plus a supercharger, stock gears, and 37s is asking the trans to commit suicide.
