Gears and t lock

I'm wanting to get 4.10 gears for my 98 v6 auto but not sure if I should also get a differential iv heard some people say that the gears didn't fit the stock diff...I'm kinda tight on money also but any ideas on what it would cost to install the gears

I installed the tlock by myself I got a used one from eBay and some gears but the gears were damaged so I just installed tlock. Now gears u need special tools to install when I shopped around it was like 400 dollars to install

A Cam* sorry that just bugs me when people say that...

As to the t-lok alone, all it does is give you some traction, save up for gears to go with it....

Not to mention that if you do gears alone your right rear tire will hate you, you'll be spinning everywhere and in no time that tire will be worn down...

The T-Loc allows both wheels to spin. The gears are the ratio of driveshaft revolutions to the tire revolutions. 4.10 means the driveshaft spins 4.1 times for every time the wheel makes one revolution.

If u wanna make alot of power look into a used 8.8 gt rear end. In my area they are expensive so i just added a tlock and whenever I need to rebuild I will throw some gears in there
