Gear ratio's?

The Whole ratio thing is a grey area for me. Let,s say 4.10's compared to 3.73's what's the difference and how does it affect your take off and your highway speed. Any info. would be great, thanks.

Welcome to the site. Glad to help.

That is the number of times the drive shaft turns over compared to the wheels turning only one time....... 4.11 times or 3.73 times or even say 3.00 times.. More times equal more pulling power and faster acceleration, and more rpms during cruise......

3.00 would be a "higher" gear than 4.11 in that it is simply compared verbally to Low gear starting out (more rpms) and high gear for cruising.... (less rpms).
