If you are really thrifty you can re-gear at least the rear cheap. I got an install kit minus bearings for $35 shipped. Another probably $35 for pinion and carrier bearings.... A SOLID cover for $65 with sealer and new hardware, 4.56 gears new off e-bay for $142 shipped, an open carrier free, and a installed but never driven on, Detroit E/Z locker for $75.
My brother in law and I are going to do the install so that will cost nothing.
Front will be more expensive because I'll have to buy a carrier but I'll shop for great deals for it too.
Any gear savings can be applied to engine parts since you have that going on now too.
FWIW I think 4.56 is best. Just barely higher RPM than stock 3.55's and 31" tires, but that's OK since the taller truck is pushing more air and tire now.

No matter how much it's washed, it's still a butt HOLE.
just wanted to see if any pictures of women came up while i had it in.
WANTED: Sterling aftermarket diff cover, install kit, 3/4 Chevy Calipers, 4.88 gears, 1350 yoke.
