Thanks fastnloud.

The '77 should have a truck 12 bolt, not the 10 bolt. If you have the 10 bolt then it must have been swapped at some time.
Never knew that! Learn something new everyday I guess. The rear tires im running are 295/50/15 DR's. The only real plans for the truck is car shows and stop light to stop light "per say". Any other opinions to be had?

help choosing rear end gears.

Truck is a 1977 c10 with a factory 10 bolt and 2:73's. Ive installed a 700r4 with a 2500 rpm stall. I eeally do t know where to start. I have thought about going with 3:73's but been told its way to low while using a 700r trans. The truck is not a daily nore will it hit the highway but it will be driven around town a few times a month. Can anyone recomend a set of gears for me. Thanks.
