Hey all...I have 3.73 gears, I was curious of any notable or worth while for the price tag of getting 4.11 gears put in? I just wanted to get some low end torque back and better than 13mpg :) lol.

Tried looking, I see a few posts on em but looking for maybe something recent thats done it and if its worth the cost of saving up $3k for?

Obviously you'll have the lower gear ratio, which is beneficial if you're planning on doing any rock-crawling.

I don't know what it would cost to do it or how much work is involved.

Personally I think 3.73 gearing is more than adequate for normal trail-riding & off-roading - unless you're an avid 4-Wheeler, that is 4-wheeling & rock-crawling all the time.

On a side note, a lower gear ratio is going to make your engine rev higher, faster than it would with a lower gear ratio and that definitely will NOT help your MPGs.
