In Topic: 720 gears

It will probably stay stock for a while.  Down the road who knows.  I know I've read that the gear swap wakes up the truck a bit, but I was wondering if 4.375 is too much and should I look for 4.11?

My 720 I believe has the 3.7 rear in it, but I have a chance to buy a rear out of a 77 620, which I believe is the 4.375 gearing.  Would anyone recommend this upgrade?   I thought I might want to jump on this while I have the chance.  I would just change out the 3rd member when I am ready to do it.  Is the 4.375 too much gear?  This is a toy not a daily, and my plan down the road is to do some performance upgrades (how far yet I am not sure, but I do tend to go overboard).  Any thoughts?

So I did a few things to the 720 this past weekend. Like I said in the first post rust is pretty much non existent, but there were a couple of places I wanted to address so they wouldn't turn into problems.  First was some surface rust in the bed.  I knocked it down with sandpaper, cleaned it up with a wire brush and threw some primer and paint on it to preserve it.

After that I started on the bottom of the drivers door (which is the only real rust to speak of).  It had some small rust starting where the sheet metal folds over on the underside.  Knocked it down with sandpaper, cleaned it up with a wire brush and got some primer on it.  I am still not done with the door.  I may put a small layer of filler over the fold acting like a skim coat to make it look better.

Yes Titan 17's.  Still looking for tires for them.  Hopefully soon.
