I want 32's!

I have 3" bl, 2" Coil lift. 3.73 gears.
I have 15x8 cragar soft 8's, just need Tires!!

Few Choices..
Jetzon Mudcrawl Radial M/T- On sale locally(BC) -1000$ out the door
BFG Muds- 1150$ costco
Wild Country/ Rocky Mountains- I hear good and bad things
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R With Kevlar- sounds interesting
Other- ?

Should I go with 33's with my gearing and lift? \
Its not a daily driver, its a weekend camping truck through logging roads. Any advice would be great!

Your going to want to regear with even 32's. 3.73's will be a dog even with the 4.0.

Those prices seem expensive but I don't know Canadian prices. Search around the site a bit and you will find a lot of info on tires.

Yeah that is what we pay in Canada. The boarder is 30 mins away so discount tire would be my best bet for prices.
As for gearing I can always go for 31's.

lol no it wont. youll be fine with 32s and 3.73s. there will be some power loss but not anything to trip out about. i wouldnt go above 32s tho without a regear.

Good stuff, now that gearing is okay, what brands should I look for? I've read posts about the WildCountry's. Reviews say they have thin side walls arnd are shaky? Anyone know what that is all about?

Yes, it will. Considering stock size is a 27 or 28, a 32 will defiantly effect it. He asked about his gears and I told him. It will be effected it depends on the person if they want to regear or deal with a sluggish vehicle.

I love 3.73's in town with my 32's. Fits my driving style very well, nice and smooth. I HATE 3.73's and the extremely hilly highway driving I do. The inclines make it a constant battle to keep the thing in overdrive... i usually use.

I will say i get 19 average tho, which is great IMO for 32's, 3.73's, 3.0, and terrible road conditions for good MPG

He has a 4 liter, he should be fine. lol Kinda sarcastic. but those old pushrods do there job. If it's not a daily just go for it. Even if it is what the heck who cares. Only way to see what you like. If you find your not happy with those gears then save up a bit of cash and go lower. Your call.
