    Sweeeeeet and Nice looking is all I can say!
    Makes me wish I had some.
    What are you running for a tranny?
    What is your RPM's at 65 MPH? In Drive and Overdrive (if so equiped).
    What is the actual tire height (probably between 34-35")?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I am regearing (maybe) to 4.56 with true 33" tires and want to know what I'm going to be looking at for RPM's. I know I will be higher than you but it will give me ballpark. I know I can use gear calculators (which is how I decided initially on 4.56's), but I also like to have real world experience if at all possible. Thanks you can PM me if you want.

    If you didn't built it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    Leadfood-
    Thanks for the comments.
    I have the stock 700R4 with the 241.
    With the 36s @ 65 mph I am pushing between 2300 and 2500 rpm in OD and about 2800 in 3rd.
    I ran 33s for a while and liked the performance much better with the 4.56s. If that is what you are going to run, I think it is about perfect.
    If I had to do it again, I would go with 4.88s or 5.13s with the 36s. Keep in mind, this is not my daily driver.

    Thanks very much!
    Just as an aside. I have a TH350 NP205 (10bolt/14boltFF) combo now with 3.23 (rare) gearing and 33's. I can fly but it takes me forever to get up to speed. I am replacing the TH350 with a built 700R4, and I figured I would be doing pretty well with the lower 1st gear of the 700R4 and the 4.56 regearing plus the OD for highway. I was just curious about RPM's in drive if I ever had to throw the TH350 back in.
    P.S. Where did you get the gears from and how do you like them?

    great looking truck
    i just had new m/t 33-12.50's installed, and today i ordered the exact same looking rims
    15x8's, and i am running 4.10's 208 700 with od and torque convertor lock up, 16.5 mpg at 75 on highway.
    how wide are your rims?
    i currently have the stock rally rims, and would relly like to push my rear wheels out some.
    the guys at the 4x4 shop said the offset was dif on the bullet holes, but they are going to push the front
    wheels out the same as the back. as it is now the front are far enough out, but the rear looks recessed to far
    any suggestions, i have heard of wheel spacers, but the idea does not sound to structural???
