if your stock gears are 3:55 then they say that 4:56 with 35's will get you close to stock again. So it is like you have a 245 tire on instead of a 35. There r sites you can go to that have charts to help you out in this.

a lot of guys love the 4.56 gears in the newer 5 speed dodges with hemis and 4.7s even with the stock tires. But i have not heard as many good things in the older dodges. you would probably end up fine running 35s. dodgetalk.com is a good place for any info on stuff like that.

I've got the 4.56's in mine with my 39" tires. I just drive with the OD off all thetime. The 4.56's and 35's will be a good combo for you.

4.56 is fine. You could even do 4.88 if you wanted to leave a little room for growth to 36ish or short 37's in the future.

Nobody can answer that until you indicate what axles you have, so make sure you identify them when you post in Wanted.
