    I'm running 275/70/18 on my 5.7L crewmax. Definitely can feel the difference in larger heavier tires but not so bad that I'd drop money to regear it. If I went to 34 or 35 I'd definitely want to regear.

    Plus even just going to 33s took about 2mpg off...35s must really tank it. It would really impact towing capacity/comfort too I'd guess.

    I tested the Michellin LTX AT2 in heavy Mud and those tires did really good I'm willing to trade my Nitto Ridge Grapplers

    Are 2nd and 3rd gen diffs that much different than first gen? If I remember right I spent about 400 on my gears and bearings/shims/solid collar and 400 for install. 2wd

    I mean installation wise. Parts price looks about $100 more per diff but that's still a steep price difference on install.

    I put 35 inch tires on my truck and I definitely noticed the transmission searching for gears. I felt it run a little on the sluggish side as well. I ended up going with Nitro 4.88 gears and what a hell of a difference!!

    I paid 3500 for installation and parts. Gear kit front and back which cost me 1799.00 in 2015, and I even got an Auburn LSD for the 3500 price

    Yes a professional install is the way to go. You dont want to have to do it twice.

    I just put 33's on my truck about a month ago. I have seen nothing different at all, except that it rides better and feels good to have new tires. I drove 100 mph on the highway passing cars and kept cruise at 85 and it ran like a top. Why go through all the expense and time just for 33's. Now if you were gonna do 35's or 37's or bigger, okay. Damn, keep your money. Unnecessary in my book.
