I finally finished up my 4.56 regear break in and managed to head up North. I am really happy with how the 4.56 gears are performing. I have taken the i17 North previously and I could barely make the hills. This time around I was cruising up the hills with OD off at 65mph. Ultimately, I feel the biggest advantage of the regear was how it performs off road. I could really feel what a major improvement I have in 4 Low. I hardly have to give throttle over obstacles which is great. I replaced my speedo gear to a 38 tooth according to the chart, and I am pleased that it is dead accurate in relation to the GPS. It feels great having an accurate speedometer again!

I have been looking into doing gears on mine. a friend told me that for my tire size that I needed 4.10's but a company told me 4.56. I was watching a clip on youtube and they said to take your current size tire and divide by the OEM tire size then multiply by the OEM gear set. (I will do mine for example) 33/28 x 3.55 = 4.18. Since there isn't a 4.18 then 4.10 would be the correct gear. I believe you are running 33's? Have you seen worse MPG's and higher revving?
