[pete ionescu] I got a Dodge 3/4t with 3.54 rear end and I want to change to 4.10 for a better towing.How much gas I will burn more with the new rear end and how much will I have to pay to do the job?Thank you.
[Scott milton] Don't know about the dodge, but...I changed my Chevy 3.42 to a 3.90. Dropped 3 mpg but picked up much needed extra power. Cost ? $200 for a rear end out of a junkyard - swapped it myself. Dealer wanted $1,200 + Labor for same thing. Point - IF you put in new gears, they MUST be broken in the same as you would an engine. Don't tow for the first 500 miles or you WILL ruin them. Happy Camping, Scott
