Question type: Car Customization

I have a'96 F150 4x4 with a 4" lift and 35/12.5 x
18's. What gears would be best - 4.56 or 4.11?

2 Answers


I am no 4x4 expert, but 4:56 would be pretty steep. What are you going to use the truck for? Perhaps browse the F-150 forum for suggestions.


If you have a V6 4:56 gears if you have a V8 I would go with 4:11
