My original plan was to regear my X with some 5.13's. After pricing gear sets @ around 1k for front and back, then factoring spending at least that much or probably more for install, I am reconsidering. I have been looking on Ebay and found a front diff with 4.9 ratio and a rear with 4.9 and a locker. Around $560 for both less shipping. The only foreseeable issue is that they are out of an '04. Will these bolt up directly to my '00? They are both 1st gens. but are they the same? This ratio will allow me to run some 32's with a decent amount of torque. I figure that will get me by for awhile until I can build up some solid axles that will allow me to go for a deeper gear ratio to run 35's. Preferably around a 5.88, that will give me an ample amount of torque to offset the radius of the 35's and the added weight of the heavier running gear.
