What should i do?

Have a buddy that's offering me 3.73 gears for $50.00. Should I take them or just hold off until I can afford 4.10? I'm almost positive my Stang won't be coming out next spring due to me saving $ to work on it and I wont want to drive it around with mismatched body panels.

If the gears are brand new for $50 you can likely resell them at a slight profit and use the money towards the mods or body work you want via Craigslist or eBay. It will not be a large profit but every dollar counts right? Lol it's up to you if it's worth your time or not though.

This is only my second mustang, my first was a 92 5.0 vert, all stock. I don't really know which I want/need. I live in the country and drive to a small city for work (28miles one way). I know the 4.10's will have me running at higher rpms (use more gas) but I just don't know what I should do

Personally I would go with the 3.73 then unless you have another car that gets better mph for a DD!.. Also depends on what your goals are!.. Are you trying to build more of a track car or are you going for more of a cruiser?...

Good move. Especially with your daily commute of over 50 miles. I want 3.73s for mine as well, the 4.10s would reduce top speed anyways
