What rpms is your engine most used at? Supercharger robs up to 20% engine efficiency. You gain power but really wont feel it till high rpms when the engine can really open up. If you plan on crawling trails with your truck, then gears is the way to go. Its all about having torque for crawling. I warned my friend about this before he bought a supercharger for his v6. He didnt believe me.

Update: He was unhappy with the lack of low end power still and ended up trading it in.

Just my .02

For 265 I'd go supercharger I think . Not worth the regear at that size .

I know you guys said swapping a v6 in would be cheaper but I have a hard time ripping the 4 banger out of a 2011...nor do I have a trust worthy mechanic or the knowledge myself to do such a job.

If I get gears I could probably also invest in sliders, headers or maybe a front bumper as well, if not 2 of those 3 items depending on cost. If I decide on the S/C I would be purchasing it around late Aug/Early September as I don't want to tap into my savings.

Either way this purchase is to make the truck more drivable in the mountains. As of now I am just dreading any trips up to 10k.
Go with the gears over the S/C. Do 4.56's, not 4.88's if you're getting on the highway at all. I have 4.88's and I comfortably cruise with semi decent MPG at 65-70mph. I had the same overall internal debate, and a S/C will not help improper gearing, it is a bandaid to the true issue. (I'm also talking about a 33inch tire... not a 265.)

I purchased a 2012 regular cab 4x4 last week and since its a 2.7 I figured it would be appropriate to ask this here. I'm going to lift it soon but how do the regular cab 2.7s do with say a 3" lift? I'd like to stay away from regearing for now so I don't plan to run very big tires. I've been trying to read up on stuff but there are just too many options and everyone is talking in terms that I don't know.

Also how high can I go without having to mess with other stuff like the driveshaft or other parts? I'd like to get something that is pretty straight forward install wise. Honestly have no plans for crawling or any extreme stuff. Just a weekend hunting and fishing vehicle as well as a daily driver.

anything over a 265 tire needs a re-gear. I speak on that from experience. 5th gear is pretty unusable unless you're heading downhill on the highway with 33's. The lift is sort of irrelevant to the gearing, it's the tires that really bog the truck down. 3 inches is pretty much it without spending lots of money.

Okay. I had planned to run 265/75s with a small lift. If I'm not going to be doing a lot of rock climbing(I may do some eventually but nothing serious) what would be a good kit for 2-3"? I keep hearing toytech and ome. Any others?

3" is about the max, and even then your CVs are going to hate you.
If you don't intend to regear and run larger tires, why the big lift? Lifts that are out of proportion to the tires look horrible.... look up "Cen-Cal" for some examples.
They don't gain much in ground clearance since the rear diff is not raised by anything other than the tires, and they increase the odds that you're going to have driveline vibration issues.

And a 2.7? Larger tires are going to kill your fuel economy and low-end pull.
Even with a regear, adding 30+lbs of unsprung weight to each corner is going to hurt.
265/75s aren't too bad, but I wouldn't go larger.

Well a quick trip to Ace Hardware for a few eye bolts took care of the flag mounts. Don't you just love taking the drill to a two day old truck?

The flags are 3x5 and the poles are 5 foot 1/2" ID PVC that we use, I have bags of them. I set up the Harley mount so I can use these as well. I got a couple small hose clamps that I can put on the bottom to keep them from popping out. The light is just a cheapo ebay led flasher for tail-gunning funeral escorts. It's pretty solid but I'll probably use window flags if we plan on going faster than 45 or so.

Hadn't planned on it but I saw a can of plasti dip and thought I'd try it after seeing all the posts here about it. This stuff is brilliant. Did the front and back emblems and the old chrome license plate frame.

Enjoy,
