Hey guys i may be getting a new truck here soon.! :big_banana_Dance:Im getting rid of mine because i hate not having any power at all. I cant spend 2 grand on gears for my truck. So my question is the truck im looking at has a 5.3 and 6 speed trannsmission with 3.42 gears. If i were to run the 3" rough country kit and 33"s would the 3.42 gears screw me over and put me in the same boat im in now or would it not be a noticable difference? and if any of yall have any pics of crew cab trucks with the 3" rc kit that would be awesome! Ive searched but all i come up with is questions about it not pics! Thanks in advance guys!

the six speed and the 3.42 gearing will be the same as the 4 speed with 3.73 gears

3.42's and 33's would suck balls imo. I drove 3.73's and 35's for a while and it was aweful. Truck shifts in and out of overdrive all the damn time. Acceleration was awful. Thankfully they blue up and i just got 4.88's in and man what a difference. Regearing is an important step dude. I wouldnt like that setup at all with those gears.
