Spicer Gears or Yukon Gears

Im trying to decide to go with either Dana Spicer Gears 4.10 or Yukon Gears 4.10.
I want to get your opinions on what brand gears I should get between the two. Please don't tell me other because I know these 2 gears are the best out there.

The real question here is why are you wasting money on 4.10's? With 33's you should be running 4.56's if not 4.88's.

4.56 would bring my rpms to 2900 rpms on highway if I had 35's then I would go 4.56 but Im staying with 33's and I do mostly highway driving with occasional offroading.

You are going to be very disappointed after spending all that money to go from 3.73's to 4.10's.

Hear me now, believe me later . . .

BTW, I'm running Yukon's right now and they are working out fine. Perhaps a little more whine compared to Spicers.

4.56 Dana Spicer.

I agree with Technohead, 3.73 to 4.10 is not a big enough change to justify the cost.
