Gears and lockers should be the first mod if you wheel.

It really made a difference in the driveability of my rig with the 35" tires. Definitely worth it. It will probably even pay for itself with mpg savings. Although that will be a while...a long while.

I got a hell of a deal on the whole thing...
$75 for used 35k 4.10's (3.21's and 35's)
$300 for front carrier and install kits and
$300 for the install.

I know I'll catch hell for this, but the 4.10's work great for me
and my 6sp & "35" (33 7/8") KM2's (Lotta interstate driving)
I would do it again in a second! Maybe with a 4.56.

I'd do the same thing again ...except go with 37" tires. The gearing is even better after adding the weight of after market bumpers and rails.
