how boggy would it be to have 3.42 with 35s. Would I noticed a significant power loss. I plan on eventually getting 3.73s after I save up more money, but that would be a couple of months.
If MPG is a concern for you then don't lift your truck. However, keep in mind that with lower gears you will turn more RPMs, BUT you motor will not be working as hard to move the truck and keep it moving. Your tranny will love you as well.really? well that wouldnt be bad at all, i just dont want to get 35s and new gears if its gunna kill my gas mileage. I figure it will take a hit a little bit though.
:word:pm spence, he has 35s and 3.42s and he's been driving around on them for months
:shake: I ran 4.88s with small 35's (about 33.5" tall) and I loved it. Acceleration and performance "felt" better than stock and I got decent mileage. Driving on the highway wasn't bad at all either. Going 70mph, I was just under 2300 RPMs. I had all the power I wanted in the sand too.i like the way you think. 4.56s would be perfect. 4.88s if you have ANY doubt in your mind that 35s will be the biggest you will run.
