A lot of people don't even regear for 33's. I ran 33's with 3.73s on my last truck and I felt it was fine. 32's are only an inch bigger than your tires now, you'll be fine.


Edit: My opinion doesn't count, I had a 6 cyclinder/

What's your gear ratio now? I drove my little brother's 2.5L w/ 32's on the back w/ 3.73's.....and it is a dog.

in your sig it has 2.5L...is it swapped in? or i think you meant 2.3. I dont know what gear ratio 4 banger 4x4s came with but i have 31s and 4.10s and its not really what i call a dog but it is knocking on that level, im getting 4.30s soon, im thinking that if you offroad alot then 4.10s would be fine or since you have 4lo that stock would be fine.

depends on gears... is it a dog with your 31's? if not then i doubt it will change with 32's.

i got 3.27's and 31's and the 4.0 and its a dog, i would re gear it even with 31's but it depends on your current gear ratio.

are you gonna re-gear to 3.73s?? Cuz why would u do that, why not go to 4:56 to plan ahead?? (4.0 here)

Running 3.73 w/33s?? i might have to try that once the BL comes in!! ha

33/28.9=1.141868512x3.27=3.733910035

Whoa buddy? whats happening, did i say something wrong??

Im jsut saying esp. for a 4-banger 3.73s is small for 33's...even for a 4.0
I have 3.73 with a 4.0, im gonna regear to 4.56 just in case i wanna run 35's later.......

i would say 4.56's if your going to run 33's.

but being that your truck is a manual like mine, you should be fine with 4.10's.
