    Probably had to have room for a DEF tank.

Im wondering if they did this because of strength, and what the 4:1 transfer case will be doing with torque output with 442ft/lbs. Im not gonna lie, Im a little bummed, wasn't planning on a quick regear after slapping on 37s.
    Sounds like you'll need to test drive one and see

    Because of the dynamic of the torque figures, running anything greater than a 3.73 even up to 35s would be uncomfortable to drive.

    Nah, regardless, Im getting the diesel, and will regear if necessary. My only concern would be that amount of torque, multiplied, through a smaller pinion. I've been waiting this long, no chance Im backing out now.
