    Will 35''s be too much tire for a 4 cyl with 4.88's on a 6 inch lift? Or should I just go with 33"s? Thanks

    I dont know why you would want a 6" lift on a regular cab...there are lots of people running 35's with a 3" lift maybe see how they did that.

    It seems like you just want to do the lift for looks because 6" lifts use a drop bracket which hidners your ground clearance...

    It should work. Personally I'd never go over 33 inch tires. What is the need for bigger on such a small truck?

    Ya im aware of the clearance issues, but not too concerned cuz it will mostly be a street rig and the trails it will see wont be too crazy. I've seen some smaller lifts with 35"s also but im dont really want to get an aftermarket bumper for the front for extra clearance.

    the only reason i would want to go with 35"s is for looks. I dont want the tires to look 'undersized'.

    The tires wont look undersized with the lift you have now.

    alrighty so I think im goin with Toyo MT 35 x 11.5 (285/75/R18) tires. They're lighter than the 33 x 12.5" too so that should help some. The wheels are gonna 18" ATX mojave at 9.5" wide and 4.3" backspacing. Hopefully it will be done by the end of next week then I'll post the pics!

    are you talking decrease in power with or without the regear? sounds like you through those beasts on and expected it to go normal. Without regearing and bringing the factory specs back into work then ya it will lose alot of power and eat up gas like no ones business!

    It's a great idea. Just regear the damn thing so it's not gutless.
