I think at first you would feel like a NASCAR driver until you got used to it

You're running a manual trans, I think you're fine running what you have to be honest. I guess it depends on what you plan to do with the truck most of the time...

Seems like it from what I noticed.
Honestly didn't notice a huge difference at all when I bumped up from 33"s to 35"s on stock gears. A little less power, but you could make up for that by getting the RPMs higher before shifting.

Also noticed a smaller MPH window for good MPGs before it takes a nose dive.
