    Probably not going to be in popular demand but i have the front differential out of my truck that ide like to sell. 3.83 gear ratio, nothing wrong with it, just needs new 4*4 solenoid for it as I used the one that was in it for the new diff in my truck. The reason for selling is I did a gear ration change in the truck so the 3.83 is useless to me now! Make some kind of offer if you're interested!

    I'm pretty sure it would be 3.73 not .83 I've never heard of that gearing. Also, did you change the whole diff or just the gears?

    I think he went to 4.10 or something and apparently swapped the whole diff instead of gears, I also think he went with a 14bff rear axle instead of a 14bsf rear axle.

    I would like to do a solid front conversion at some point to this truck....basically my goal is, even once i start adding much newer trucks, to turn this into the absolute ultimate work truck.
