    I could have purchased some 4.56 gears for my truck, but instead am getting an English Bulldog.
    Cost more than the gears, but im sure it will bring joy to the both of us.
    Heres a few pics.

    Henry, I will definitely be showing my g/f(future fiance then wife [​IMG] ) these pics of your dog. She wants an English Bulldog so bad. Heck, she watches the show The Osbournes just to see their bulldog Lola.
    Two years ago I surprised her with a Shar-pei since she has wanted one forever. Well, just a couple of months ago Molly, the dog, was put to sleep because she had so many health problems.
    Guess it's time for a new dog, well not for awhile! Too expensive! [​IMG]
    So what's the name of the cute little pooch?

    You know, while they've got the gears out it would be soooo easy to add an ARB Air-Locker.....[​IMG]
    Both of them smell bad(dogs and differentials), but diff oil is the nastiest thing I've ever had the pleasure of smelling.

    Aw, 4.56s would probably be a bit brutal on the highway anyway.

    (Just buy yourself a supercharger next year instead.)

    If you're running 38s, 4.56s should be about right (if you started with stock tires and 3.73s or so). There is some "final drive calculator" i've seen online so that you keep the ratio (or increase it slightly) for the larger tires.

    Dog's are nto too expensive. Well, only if you are talking about the overall life long costs. I would (and do)gladdly trade the money for my dog.

    If you are talking about the initial purchase price, if you are set on a purebred, then they can get pricey. If not, got to the local human society/pound. Adopt a dog that needs love and a family. Thats how I found out about Staffies, and what wonderful dogs they are.

    I already have the dog. Now I am going to be getting the Truck (gears included). I own a 1949 Fargo (early Dodge Canada) that has been sitting at my parents house since I moved to Ontario. Flying back to Alberta in September and going to take two weeks driving it back.
