I'm looking for some suggestions on what, in your opinion, is the idea gear ratio for the 04 CC 4x4. As it stands now, i have 4.9 with 31'' tires. I'm going to be doing a lot of mods to the truck ( 3'' sus, 2''bl) and larger tires. I'm wanting to put 33'', possibly 34'' tires on my truck. I'd like to rule a SAS out for now, maybe one day put a new front in, then the rear axle at a later date. If you've upgraded your gears, or have 4.9's in your truck now with 33''s
how is it working for you? I'm not too worried about gas mileage, but I dont want to have to worry about the gears. I had to replace the rear end about 2 yrs ago at 89,000, being a dumb a** in my truck throwing it from neutral to drive too many times just isnt good for it. I had to learn the hard way though so I'd like a little advice from those of you who have similiar mods as what mine will be. Thanks
EDIT: I realize this may belong in the axle portion of this forum, but I want advice from fellow first gen ppl.

i ran 4.9s with 33s for a couple of years and it worked fine. Would still pull better than my buddys lighter desert runner with 4.6s and 32s.
Yep, what he said. We swapped in the 4.9's on the truck (it came with the 4.6 gears) and ran a 2" BL with 3" SL and 33" Goodyear MTRs..it was just fine.

:flipoff2:

The exhaust and intake helped you a bit too.

Seriously mine on 4.636:1 stock gears and 32s(265/75R16) pretty much sucks compared to the stock 29" tires (255/65R16). Of course there is a crap ton of extra weight over stock but I could never quite keep up with Brian and his truck was on 33x12.50s, a 3" body lift, and a very non-aerodynamic bumper.
