3.73 gear and 32's.

Would I have any problems running 32's on 3.73 gears? Or would it be best to get 31's? I'm installing a body lift this month.

If you can find good 32's. i ran them some Bridgestone duelers that were 32's on a 3.73 for a bit before i swapped out to 4.10's and got BFGs. i never really had too many problems.

Good tire. All seasons? or KM2's? cause those are really the only options you'll ever need.

good tire for the money. you should be fine, if you do blow out your rear end its a good excuse to put 4.10's in.

you'll be fine, your hwy mileage will go up a tiny bit, but your city start/stop will go down, since it will be a little sluggish but not to bad.


i had 33's on 3.73 for a bit with my 3.0, but now with my 5.0 v8 i don't notice anything :P

Use this to give you a idea of how much lower your rpm's will be on the highway.Put in your stock info, then put in the info for your new setup and subtract.

I used it to check my current setup and its dead on.
