    I'm not sure exactly how much lift is there but its 12" plus. Did some rearranging with the suspension so need to compare it to something that's factory.

    Wow, I didn't think anyone would admit to having that much lift on a rig at this site. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    My truck is tiny, only has 6 and 3. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Re: any trucks here with 15\" of lift?

    It seems that most trucks with such a huge lift have at least 38" - 44" tires. What gear would be good to run with tires that are so big, 5.13's or higher?

    Re: any trucks here with 15\" of lift?

    I run mine with 4.10, but I think for 38 or bigger, 4.88 is ideal even with overdrive, but 5.13 probably would even better. To run 40-44" tires, 5.13 or better are probably your best best, however, it does depend on the intended use, as you can get away with much higher (lower numerically) if you're using it for mud (wheel speed is your friend). Really I guess it boils down to what you prefer as well. I personally would prefer 4.56 or 4.88 with the tires I have, but I'm not going to bother to change until I go all the way to 5.13.
