    They will do fine. Your limiting factor will be ground clearance and possibly open diffs. I haven't runn them, but a few folks around here run them on 1/2 ton Chevys with 3.08-3.73 gears, automatics, and 350s. A 4.10 or even 4.56 would be better, especially if you have overdrive.

    Well judging by the size you listed I am assuming they are Boggers. If so, you will not find a better tire for boggin. Bottom line. Bigger is always better for mud but 36 Boggers will do good IMO.

    boggers are great for muddin, but what gear are you running? If the stock gear and motor is all ya have, better stay way down in low range to keep up the rpms.
    If your original tire was 31 inches tall and you have a 3.73 gear you will feel like you have a 3.30 gear with a 35" tire height. If you had an approx. 31" tall tire to start with then you should run a 4.56 gear (actually around a 4.20 but no such creature so go up one) with the new tire size. This is merely to keep the rpms up about like they were with the stock tires.

    Must fill out profile!! Would probably depend on the texture of the mud you run in. Sometimes it is better to run skinny boggers than wide so you will get to the bottom. A lot depends on the weight of your rig.
