I wonder what the difference with 4:30s would be? I just bought one and got 7.3 from the Fountain factory pulling my 38. It turns 2750 RPMS at 75 MPH and 2550 at 70. I'm thinking that 4:30s would help. The truck runs great with no slow up on hills but loves fuel. Any other info from Ford gurus? Roger

I ordered mine in Nov and just got it last week. There are alot of 4.88s around, I ordered the 4.30s. Plenty of pull for my 42 Tiger. I only have about 60 miles on it, 60 MPH = 2000 rpm. I have a 04 shop truck with 4.88 gears, I like the 4.30s much better. As for milage I towed a mini trackhoe tonight and was seeing 9 mpg average.

I have the 4.10 in my 07' F350, had 4.30 in the 06' F350. I actually like the 3.73 gears the best, these trucks have massive torque, the key is getting better milaege out of them.
