What gears do you like and why?

Are 4:11 with 33s good on the hwy [C6]? I'd like to be able to run at 80mph without blowing a gasket.

I have always been kinda partial to Spaceley Space Sprockets, I have better luck with them than Cogswel Cogs.

Do you have overdrive?
Becouse LukeNukem's C-6 does not.

I have 5.13's Detroit Lockers f/r on 37" tires and it is my daily driver....I don't run over 70 though. Don't have any issues with rpms but I also have an OD tranny. But it will get up and go...

InkDawg, about what rpms do you run at 65? I plan on getting 5.13s soon and I have 37s also (actually moving up to a 38 later this year). I was worried about over gearing it but it seems like 5.13s would be great for a little more power out of the 302.

I have 4.10 gears, 33's, and a C6. 80 mph is about 3400 rpm, not particularly desireable. It is a very good choice for offroading.
