get them installed very good with a written warranty covering gear whine and breakage so you will be covered.

the more bottem end you have the less gear you want, the gear is only a suppliment of getting to the powerband faster.

Re: friend talked me into buying gears....4.10 vs 3.73

Its not about miles, its about breaking them in right. You're gonna want to go drive on them for about 20 minutes, then let them cool down for a half hour or so. Do this 6-8 times to allow the gears to set in their wear pattern. After you do that, go have the rear diff fluid changed out with some good synthetic fluid. If you dont change the rear fluid, theres going to be lots of metal shavings in there and thats not good. Dont have them put anything expensive in that rear diff when they initially install the gears since you're just going to be dumping it out in a few hundred miles anyway.

Re: friend talked me into buying gears....4.10 vs 3.73

Id just take it somewhere for them to change it. Ive never done it so I cant tell you how to, but you should be able to buy the fluid and take it somewhere for them to put it in. I run mobile1 synthetic rear diff fluid in mine.
