Hmm what should i do?

Already got a smalll suspension lift (just prekey and shackles) and a 3" body lift.. but im going to be getting a superlift int he near future. Is it bad to run 35's on stock 4.10's? Im just worried about long term effects on the drivetrain if i did that.

If it would cause long term trouble running 35's on 4.10's i was going to just maybe keep the superlift with the prekeys and shackles for a 6" lift and keep my 33's, and remove my body lift all together. I want to regear but i heard its pretty expensive so i just want to stick to these options for now.

soooo to sum it up:
A) 9" lift, and run 35's with 4.10's...
B) 6" suspension, with body lift removed.. and keep 33's

Anybody running 35's on 4.10's and how bad is it really for your truck? obviously gas mileage will go down thats expected but how hard is it on your drivetrain while wheeling and highway driving?

Thanks!

it wont be great, but do able. i think its going to cause alot of heat in the torque converter and break down the trans fluid faster...and if you dont stay on top of it you could kill your tranny. its going to be hard on it as it is, but i think you could get away with it for the tim it takes to save up for the gearing. i say go big! your truck is fairly new and will probly hold up. Ty's4x4 did the same thing and was still under warrenty and got it covered.

I wouldn't run 4.10's with 35's. As for option b, why take the bodylift off just to replace it with a Superlift? Suspension lifts are better, but you already have a bodylift installed. I'd just wait until you can afford to do everything at once.

KLC i just hate the look of a body lift man.. its just so ugly lol. id much rather have that sexy fully lifted look and not have it look so fake with the body lift in there. But yeah i will probably just end up keeping it and double lift the **** out of her.
