    33\'s or 35\'s????

    Okay guys i'm putting a 14bff in no doubt i'm not wasting the money to put gears and locker into a 10 bolt. now should i run 33's or 35's. i'm starting to think 35's cuz i'm loosing so much ground clearance with the 14 bolt to go 35's. And if i do go with 35's would u run 4:10's or 4:56's

    You would be fine with the 4.10's and 35"'s. I ran 35"s with 3.73 for years.

    Re: 33\'s or 35\'s????

    The price difference between 33s and 35s is neglible (for most MT tires.) Go 35s. You'll never be driving your truck on 35s and think "gee, I sure wish I had smaller tires." If you go with the 33s, you will eventually kick yourself.

    For the longest time I was planing on 35" tires. Well, now it's going to be 37" tires.

    id go with 4.10 gearing with the 35's.this is going to be my setup and it has been my experience so far that alot of 14 bolts come with the 4.10 gearing from the factory.at every junkyard i went to i found most all are 4.10 and i have only found one that wasn't.it was 3.73.
