Hello and welcome to just answer. Let me see if I can help you with this. There were about 3 possible gear ratios depending on other options. If you send me the VIN # XXXXX mileage of your truck then I will look up the gear ratio that the truck was built with. As far as changing the gears? It is not hard, but you do need some special tools like bearing pullers, a bench press, dial indicator etc. And if you have never done this before it may be a little tough. Send me your VIN and I will look it up.

Ok thanks. I found the truck, and here is all of the information on this truck. I highlighted the gear ratio in bold so you can find it easier. Thanks for the accept, and let me know if you need more assistance with this.
