Re: 3.73 gears

I'm just adding my 2 cents in, I have the 4.10s, not the 3.73s and the mpgs I lost was little, and mostly noticable from HWY driving. The 3.73s are probably a little better, maybe not noticable. Also, I have a Automatic, so that too may make a difference.

Re: 3.73 gears

3.73 on a 99-04 is not a HUGE jump as they already have 3.27. Its about 11-12% high rpm than stock at a given mph (its percentage based). You should lose a bit of gas on the highway and gain a touch in the city~ I would say 1-2mph city and gain maybe 1 highway... it all depends on what type of driving you do though.

As far as performance, it will make the car about 1-1.5 tenths quicker in the quarter mile. It wont be a crazy difference but its a good gain overall.

If you do gears you really should do a tlok if you have a V6 so you have both wheels turning (same amount of work basically so might as well do both at the same time)
