I like my truck, but there are some hills that I can't make in 2 or 4 hi with the factory setup. It's fine around town and on the highway, but sucks when I have to go to 4lo just to climb steep hills that don't even require 4X4 from other vehicles. I am also planning to go up one size on the tires to 265/75/16s which will make this even worse.
I am planning to go to 4.56 gears with the taller tires, I just wonder if this is enough. I want better than I have now, not just a return to factory specs.
Anyone running 265/75/16s with 4.56 gears? Is it giving better low end than factory gears and tires?
Most of my driving is under 65mph so I'm not really worried about MPG on the top end, but do make one or two long drives every year and want to stay decent at 75mph.
