Hey guys I want to get 35 inch tires what should I do about re-gearing. What would good ratios be, and where would you suggest to buy? Also my truck is bone stock what all do I need to get to properly fit 35 inch tires. How much lift? Do I need a new drive shaft? A arms? Any of that stuff! What do I need??? Thanks!

You will need a lot of money in order to properly fit 35s. At least $6,000 after all the parts and labor.

You will need a body lift, you will need a lift kit (superlift), you will need 4.56 gears at the MINIMUM, preferably 4.88s, the front superlift driveshaft is highly recommended. You'll need wheels, you'll need tires, etc, etc, etc.

Unless you want to run 33's, in which case, you can get away with just a body lift.

Yeah, I know it's going to cost a lot. I've been bouncing around ideas. But every one around here gets 33's I was just wanting to one up them, thanks for the advise!

When I had my 35's with my 4.0 - I ran 4.88's & loved them.

I purchased my Yukon gears from: Randy's Ring and Pinion Service/

depends. What engine do you have? Typically you can get by with 3.73's on 33's, but most swear by 4.10's & 4.56's.

4.10s are OK for 33's. I wouldn't want any more tire with my 4.10s.

Yup not too bad. Still have plenty of power. Never have to downshift on the highway to pass. Nor have any problems with any hills. So 33s and 4.10s isnt that bad. Basically the same ratio as 31s and 3.73s.

2011 4.0 4x4 here. Just priced a switch from 3.73 to 4.56 - $3800. I told them I didn't want LingLing (Chinese) steel so they quoted with quality parts. Damn! I was expecting $2500 or so. Well. . . They do have a 2 year parts/labor warranty. I went from stock 29" to 32" tires and the stock gears really dogged it out.
