Alot of guys run 33's with a 3" BL. I like 32's on a 3". Especially if you have 3.73 or 3.55 gears.

You can run 33's may need to trim a little.

You will wanna check your rear axle gears. You would wanna upgrade if you have 3.55 4.10's will be best especially if your gonna run 31"-33" tires. My truck was sluggish with 3.55 gears and 31" tires.

Tag should say gear ratio (4.10, 3.73, 3.55, 3.08, etc) and axle size. 8.8 or 7.5.

It might not show the dot and will be spaced ie: 3 7 3

Will look like this easier to just look at the door jam to reference the number then match on the chart.


4 10 8 8 = 4.10 8.8


If Limited Slip it will have another tag with it on the other side.
