definitely gears and really should consider brake upgrades as well.

next step up wuld be to 4.30's fro the 33's would make life nice, then 4.56's if you go up to 35's. My opinion of course.

With the 2" bl you shouldn't have any problem clearing the 35's...

I'm planning on a 4-5" superlift kit and a 3" bl to get me on top of some 36x13.50's here shortly, hopefully.

As far as gears, I'm going to go with 5.29's in my truck but i don't drive highway much in it anymore. Going by a chart I saw, 5.29's should put the 36" tires in the same gear range as the stock 28" tires were that came on the truck. In my situation, the truck has been so underpowered for so long that I can't wait to get some zip back into it.

Not only that but I happened to stumble on to a 3rd that Zuk had set up with 5.29's in it that he was selling for a fair price and jumped all over it. Now I just need to find a front.

Here's the chart I looked at witht he gear ratios.

a 2 in body lift should clear 35's and you shouldnt have a problem. people normally shoot for 7in of total lift to fint 35's.

That will work great cause i have a 5" suspension and I am insyalling the 2" bl. I may leave the 33s on for a while until they are worn out haha. Thanks for the input guys!! I guess I will go with 4.88s :)
