NEED MORE INPUT , !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so i was thinking about lifting and bigger tires ,
my question is i want a little bigger tires on my truck so i can put i lift kit on it
but i dont want to stress my 3.0 what do you think is the best tired size that wont stress the motor , and will changing the gears in the rear end help? would tires kill my transmission? or will re-gearing help it ,would it kill the pick up to go big and i know theirs some people out there that have 3.0 with tires i want to hear from you too

need as much input as you can thanks

first off you can put bigger tires on it without a lift just do a tbar crank. second if you get a body lift depending on size you can put bigger tires. it all depends on how big you wanna go with your tires i have 33s on mine with the 3.0 i had 3.73 gears and it killed me. so i would say if you have 3.73s gearing is a must.

I have a 3" suspension lift with 31" tires and haven't regeared and my trucks fine. There is a slight power reduction but the 3.0L doesn't have too much power to begin with. If you want bigger than a 31" then i recommend regearing.

if you're only going 33's, what ratio do you have now? if it's 4.10 just leave it
