    i have 4.10 gears but then i am only puttin down 430 rwhp. if you plan on makin more than 500 rwhp i would stick with the 3.73 gears. the 4.10 gear is only good for like 115 mph in the 1/4 in 3rd gear.

    Yea, i heard 3:73's are the best, but i heard if going with 30" or lager tires you need 4:10 just to make up lost acceleration :shrug:

    4:10's are sick on our trucks, If your looking to demolish people on the streets than 4:10's is the way to go, but if your going to mod the hell out of the lightning than stick with the stock gears for higher speeds
