Yeah, thats all i can find for the 7.5" also. I feel like 4.10 are too much cause of highway, but i want more than 3.73. I know they're available for the 8.8 though. Is it worth it to you guys to drop in the 8.8 rear, if im gonna install t-loc and 3.90? what do ya think?

It might end up being cheaper to install a GT takeoff 8.8. But not sure if you can find one with 3.90s already installed.

apart from price, what are the benefits of having the 8.8 over the 7.5.? is it preference or strength, or just plain better?

well... you could go with a shorter tires... 3.73 with like a 26 or 26.5 inch tire would probably give you about a 3.90... or go taller... 4.10s with 27.5 or 28 inch tire...

I met one guy who did the short tire thing. He said it was kinda nice having the little extra pep. He still had the stock gears and all that but kinda enjoyed it.
