Re-gearing...411..

I posted this in the 2nd gen forum, but maybe it's better off here.

I've read that re gearing is a good idea if you are plan on lifting and putting bigger tires. Can anyone direct me to a beginners guide to how all this works, I'm really green since this is my first truck and I would love to begin to learn how the gears effect power and gas consumption. Gotta start somehow, especially since I plan on on lifting my 5lug and going from the stock 215/70R15 to a 245/75R16. Thanks in advance!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Re gearing is always a good idea if getting larger tires.

Is there a thread around here that teaches you the basics of how re gearing works? I've searched, but haven't found one.
