rear end swap or gear swap
Hello everyone new here and wanted to get some opinions. I have an 08 regular cab 4x2 short bed the stock tires were removed and replaced with Tahoe wheels and tires 275/55-20 and man those things are heavy my truck has an open rear end with 3.23 gears and gets great mileage but acceleration is lacking I got a quote of 1200 dollars to change the rear gears from a local shop which seems awful high. I found a rear end on E-bay 3.73 gears and a limited slip with under 100 miles for 650 plus freight and wondered if I should just get another estimate or buy the rear end I know how to swap it out also is 3.73 to deep a gear I dont pull anything and the truck is just a toy.

Fast is fine, accuracy is final.
