    yea it has stock gears.....i was just wondering if theres much of a change. & i never saw it with stock ones on it, it came off the lot with 31's and some bullet hole rims so really i didnt see much of a change. thanks for your input tho, and i do plan to put a cold air intake on it in a couple weeks. just cant decide what kind i need to order.
