## Are 3.73 or 4.10 gears better for towing

For towing, **the 4.10 is better**. For a heavier load, I would agree that the lower gearing is better. For a light load (4k lbs), 3.73's would do just fine. If you foresee towing heavier loads in the future (getting a larger TH, etc), then 4.10's would be the better choice.Jul 12, 2009

## Should I get 3.73 or 4.10 gears

4.10s are going to accelerate faster and decelerate faster on lift. However the trade off is greater fuel consumption per mile driven and higher engine speed per given road speed. In basic terms the 4.10s will feel quicker and **3.73 will feel faster**.

## Can I tow with 3.73 gears

Automakers build trucks with a range of optional axle ratios. … So, a truck with optional 3.73 gears will **tow a heavier trailer than** one with 3.55 or 3.21. But it will also use more fuel in all situations because the engine's rpm will be higher.

## How much can I tow with 3.73 gears

Correct, 3.73 and 4.10 gears will tow up to **3500**. Hitch is 4 bolts and wiring is plug and play.

## What are 3.73 gears good for

A numerically higher axle ratio provides a mechanical advantage to send more of the engine's available torque to the rear tires (and front tires, in a four-wheel drive vehicle), but you pay the price at the fuel pump. So, a truck with optional 3.73 gears will **tow a heavier trailer than one** with 3.55 or 3.21.

## What is a 3.73 gear ratio good for

FACT: A 3.73 axle ratio is ideal for **towing heavy loads on flat terrain** and will produce increased fuel economy during steady-state, long-distance highway driving.

## Is a 3.73 axle ratio good for towing

FACT: A 3.73 axle ratio is **ideal for towing heavy loads on flat terrain** and will produce increased fuel economy during steady-state, long-distance highway driving.

## What gear is best for towing

The most popular rear end ratio in trucks today is the **3:55**, which sort of averages towing power and fuel economy. This is a good ratio for the occasional towing or hauling individual. For a person who tows more often, and heavier loads, the 3:73 or 4:10 may be more appropriate.

## Is a higher gear ratio better for towing

When driving a manual, **numerically higher axle ratios make towing and acceleration easier from** the start, whereas numerically lower ratios struggle to tow and accelerate initially but maintain a good speed for highway driving and increase mpg.

## Is 3.31 axle ratio good for towing

Normally, the **3.31 would get you better gas mileage**, on highway. But, with the 3.55 you will get a bit more pulling power so less time at higher RPM to get your trailer moving and when going uphill. If most of your towing is flat highway, the 3.31 should do you fine.
