STL, i couldn't find that section so i decided to post it on here because the size of your tires depends on your stock gear ratio.. one of which i can't figure out. so.. where do i do on my truck to figure this mess out? =)

thanks.

If you can't figure out how to read the code from the door jamb/online.

Mark tire with chalk at top center.
Have friend drive forward SLOOOOWLY with friend watching tire chalk/verify 1 revolution.

You sit next to the truck and count how many times the rear u-joints spins.

I didn't have a door code
Mine span alllllllmost 3.5 times. I have 3.45 gears

Some dont some do. Usually the ones that dont people were too retarded or lazy to put it back on the bolt after they finished replacing the oil or anything like that.
