New Axles

So I got the option to get a Dana 30 and Chrysler 8.25 automatic (3.55) geared axles for 75 bucks for both. I have 32 inch mud terrains. I have the stock manual (3.07) geared axles. How much better will my gas mileage be? Also is it worth it. I think so cause the price. About 130K on the axles.

Tell me what you guys think.

do it.

your mileage will be better, although with 32"s you will be happier with 4:10's

but for 75$ this is a no brainer

what year are these out of? if its a 97-99 you will get the stronger High Pinion D30

in fact I'd buy these for 75$ just to have the shafts as spares.
