It does look huge. 33's will look real sharp.

Good work.

As for bigger tires, when these wear out I will go up to 33's, but I have to regear. I have 3:55's and live in the mountains sooo..... I would love 35's but I think that they would be to big for wheelin, fine for the street, but not off road.
By twisting i mean becoming unaligned with the rest of the leaf pack. One AAL might start to turn toward the center of your truck causing all sorts of trouble. Basically making an '+' or 'X' shape with the 2 AALs.

And if your going to get bigger tires anyways, you would def. need to regear, so you might as well step up and go for the 35s.

is it 2 SHORT AAL packs you could take those out and run 1 LONG left and prob be better
Ok & gotcha!



Tire wise; I want 33's pretty bad, but I do kinda like the way it sits now. I really need to try not to spend money for a while. I have a real bad problem with spending money on my truck and guns... so I need to save for a while since more than likely, I will be moving by the end of the year. Gears are freakin expensive! I got a estimate the other day and my jaw dropped.

Buy a used 8.8 with 4.10's, that is hands down your best bet.

One of the only nice things about being 2wd is you only have one axle to regear.

I have been, I call periodically, but I live in a really small town so it's not the easiest thing to find here. the closest JY is in the next state and the next closest one is about an hour south of here.
