    Put 4.56's in it for a 40" tire unless you drive a long way then i might go with 4.10's and use low range for wheeling. either way the pinion will be plenty strong so just decide what trade off you want 4.56's will make the tranny way happier all the way around

    99 tahoe 2 dr. 4x4 7.4 4L80-e NP246, SAS, dana 60 hp, sterling 10.5 rear, gibson headers, and alot of tricks of the trade !!!!!!IF YOU'RE NOT CHEATING YOUR NOT TRYING!!!!!!!!
