Yep 4:10s will be a dog with a cummins. Motors run at lower rpm
What are you running for tires and wheels. I am still running the 16.5s with 9.50 Firestones. Tires cost a little more than 16s where cheaper than 17s still cheaper than a wheel change. Just hope one never dissinigrates away from home. The local firestone store still has one in stock for me.
At least you can imagine what 4:56 gears are like.
When I bought the truck it had 16.5 bias ply. Had mud grip implement tires on the front. It shook so bad you couldn't go over 50mph. I had a buddy with a full set of 16inch rims and a spare. I just had a new set of tires installed on the 16s. I went with pathfinder AT. Radial tires loaf rated E. wasn't cheap but a lot less expensive than a set of 16.5.
Will have $1170 in the 9.50 x 16.5s. Thats 6 tires.
My 06 QC 1500 has 315/70r/17 BFGs, they were $1200. Apples to oranges but it still hurts the wallet.
Sticking with the 16.5s was a tough choice. But the fact it doesn't get far from home helped. If it was affordable to drive cross country it would have been a different story. I have a tire available here. In the middle of no where would be taking a big chance.
