 ```Seems to me like a lot of work for little gain. It will only drop your RPM by 7% at any given road speed. I don't know what the diameter of your rear tires are, but assuming 32" your RPM at 60 MPH would be 2590 with the 4.11 rear end and 2413 with the 3.83. Little gain when you look at all the work of changing from an enclosed driveshaft to an open one, matching up parking brake hardware, etc. Why not hold out for a 3.08 rear gear which would drop the RPM by 25% to 1940 at 60 MPH using the guesstimated 32" tall tires? -----Original Message----- From: Antonio R.

I got a rear end from a '65 1/2 ton truck that not only its the same width (55 1/2), but it uses the 6 bolt pattern, the gears are still a little high 3.83:1, but better that 4.11:1 which is the original ratio on my '53. I will be installing this upgrade in the next two weeks.

Sometimes I can't say what I want too say.
