Go 35's, I was in your position a year ago and decided on 33's.........I wish I had skipped 33's and just went for 35's.

What's your focus? Offroading or your street driving?

If offroad: 35's. If street: 33's. My 35's have cost me a dollar or two, but I wouldn't want to get rid of them. I think 33's are more "cost effective".

I'll vote when you give me the answer, Billy, lol.

Well, with 4.10's and your current situation: I vote 33's. I really wouldn't do the 35's with the 4.10's and a 3.0.

but once again ill chime in and say, 35's, 4.10's and a 3.0 isnt as bad as every one thinks, just cause it doesnet look good on paper and in theory doesnt mean anything IMO, my truck moved quiet nicely with that set-up and got decent gas mileage.....no with that being said, im voting 33's cause of the wear 35's will possibly generate over time......i think that is about the only downside...
