I already have no trouble spinning tires.. but think that is because of the garbage wranglers.

That is a good point about the drivetrain... Well time to start working every second not in school -.-

Yeah I had to register it under an american address for one.. and this truck was one of my dads company trucks since new, so i will prob have to call the number to find out.
So yeah I most likely have 3.55's, that is weird that the TRX4 would have that, think they would make them bigger just to prepare for bigger tires, because that is the offroad package?

i have 3.92s and 35" M/Ts and I can definitely feel the change from stock tiers. But i can still break them loose any day. I think regearing is on the order of a thousand or two. I only found out my gears when I put my superchips on and it told me in the vehicle info in the settings.

I've run 4.56's on 31" 17's and absolutely loved the street manners... they finally went bad and i swapped in my stock 3.92's and I sorely miss the 4.56 feel...

Did the 4.56's hurt highway mileage? I am sure it wouldn't affect the city to much but wondering about the Highway.
