    It's probably safer to stay with 33s.......what size of lift do you have?

    With light trail use your not gunna need the clearence of 35s. If you really really want those 35s you really should throw in 4.11s.

    305/Sm465/ NP208
    Kn, 4.56's.
    In desperate need of a rebuild.

    I would go with a suspension lift. Im not a fan of body lifts at all.

    4.56's would be best. 4.10's otherwise would be recomended. If you keep the 3.73's I definetly would keep it in 3rd gear as you would have to be going like a bat otta heck for OD to not lug and heat the tranny up.
