Gears do nothing to hurt the motor

Re: 4.10 gears

LOL!

Don't take advice from whoever told you that. I run 4.10's daily (stock w/ exhaust, but not for long) and it's awesome. If you don't care too much for mileage you'll be fine. You'll top out quick and go through 4 gears in the first 10-15 seconds. But when you floor it and let those rpms go up, it feels like a whole different car. People are dumbfounded when I tell them I only have exhaust and gears. lol.


Oh and a short shifter

It's not the gears that affect the motor, it's the rpm I.e.. Doing 20 mph with 2.73 gears and 3.73s in 1st gear could be a 500 rpm difference. 4.30 ish gears and higher are typically found in 4wds and drag racing vehicles only. They help turn heavier tires so not strain on the power train as much
