For reference, we use the 4.30s because thats the deepest we've used with no noise and it does bring it back to stock, however we haven't tried the 4.88s, just the 4.56s which we have yet to get working with no trailing throttle noise

One of these days I'll try a set of 4.88 or 5.13...that'd be great on a PW or a diesel thats gonna see extensive use off road (which I suspect this one above will )

I completely agree with 4.30 gears for 37's, I have personally run 4.56, 4.88, and 5.13 gear ratios on my own trucks ranging in tire sizes from 37 up to 42. I use my truck offroad routinely and will fault on the side of mechanical advantage offroad over top speed on the freeway. 4.88 with 40's is the best combo of gears for my driving style. As for anyone else, AEV recommends 4.56 with 40's and it works. We have that set up in another one of our Ram builds and it has been everywhere we have wanted to take it.

In process for the fender flares. It's going to look like it skipped leg day until I get the 40's on. Gears happening next week. Should have some goodies from ARB showing up this afternoon.

I'm not using any, That is where the ARB's were set when they got off of the Brown truck. At that time we also received some Carli limit straps for a customer. We have options for days for suspension to run on trucks, and we have 4 XL kits on vehicles here including this build and Howitzer.

Update time, hoods done, fenders done, put some 40's from another project on then got working on some little things in the mean time. Mounted up some flush mount Baja Designs S2's in the rear bumper and wired them into the back up lights. Then I loaded up the lockers and rear diff cover to head on over to my friends at Nitro gear and axle to get the 4.88 gears done. It is currently on the hoist and will be ready for the remainder of the parts shortly.

Gears all done, ARB's front and rear, Nitro Gear and axle 4.88's this should be the perfect combo for what I use the truck for.
