I hope you have 1/10th the trouble me and winks had.

Good luck, few tips :

We took a 2x4 piece of wood and put pressure on the bottom of the body mount bushings used a torch to heat the bolts up a little, then used an impact on them.

most people with 33's get 4.56, and since you have the 3.0, i'd recommend it, although the 4.10 will still work

I've never really seen someone regear to 4.56 for 33's except maybe one person. Regearing for 33's is a waste of money.

I had a 3.0 with 4.10's and 35's and it drove fine man. I'd get 33's so you don't have to do anymore body mods to make them fit like i did (35's that is)
