Anyone upgrade gears?

From the stock 2.73 to 4.10's? Just looking to get and idea of what kind of difference I'm gonna see. As of now I don't track my car but would like to in the future. I don't care about fuel economy. It only gets driven once or twice a week. I got a DD for fuel economy.. My cars an auto btw.

Go 3.73's. 4.10's are just overkill. 1st is useless with them. With 3.73's its more driveable.

Checkout summit racing for a better price first on the gears but if the am combo is better then go for it. Gotta get a tuner from bama anyway! Lol

They got a great deal on the combo. Plus our forum discount. I hope to see a nice improvement with the gears, tuner and intake together.

Do I need to upgrade my differential? Or is it not really necessary?

No need. Just get the gears. You might want to save up for a shaftmasters Aluminum ds if anything. Thats our weak link.

Mine came factory with 3.73's and I love them. Different motor I know but we have same tranny. Gearing perfect for track and street use

Yep same trans just different gear ratios. Same with the F-150. Also the butt dyno should be the most improved i would think
