OK. I have finally made up my mind on the lift and tire dimension. I am going with the 2.5 BB lift and 33Ē tires. My question to you all is should I go with the 10.5 width or the 12.5 width? I donít want to spend the money on re-gearing so what would you suggest?:smokin::beer::smokin:

well what gears do you have? I know I am running 35" x 12.5" and its "ok" with the 4.10 gears. Also what off road stuff do you do. Almost always a wider foot print is better

You shouldnt have re gear if your just going with 33" tires. You can but it would be a waist i think. Definately go with the 12.50. Im getting ready to put a 4 inch lift with 35x12.50x17 and i dont plan on regearing until i get a couple more upgrades.

I have the 4.10's and I spend all my off road time in sand and mud.
