Here is a link. Scroll about 1/2 way down the page and there is a chart for your truck.

Thanks everyone for the information/help. I've got some calls in trying to get estimates. I'll keep you posted.

what do these numbers mean? 3:73 does that mean there is a 3 tooth to 73 tooth ration from one gear to another?

The driveshaft turns 3.73 times each time the rear wheels rotate one time.

I have some info. $1800 to swap 3.08s to 3.73s. Warranty would remain intact. Quicksilverado, do you think that is worth the $. Also, do you know how much it would increase towing capacity?

Wow, 1800. I guess as a factory option its an easy upgrade, my 04 1500 has the 3.73 rr and it was only a $50 option over the standard rear at the time. I can tell you the gas mileage is still pretty decent with the 3.73 rr 4 spd tranny I have. Not sure how the new six speed tranny`s work with the 3.73 rr as far as mileage. Might try asking here: http://www.silveradosierra.com/

I was thinking about the same thing. Did some checking here in Tucson and replacing all the seals, new bearings and changing from 3:73 to 4:30 were going to cost 1600.00 and that was for 2 axles, We have a 4x4.. Also don't forget to recalibrate the speedometer.

According to the chart I referred you to earlier 3.42s would increase towing capacity from 6700 lbs to 9500 lbs. They do not show 3.73s, probably because it was not an option. Price will vary a good bit from one region to another. 1800.00 does seem to be on the high side though.

The towing capacity that if left the factory with is the legal capacity for life.. no matter what changes you make... I found that out the hard way after being pulled over...
