    I am looking at putting a 6 inch on my 2007 DC TRD sport 4x4 and I was curious if anyone has ever ran 33's with their 6 inch? I have seen bcrednek3006's with the 32's and it made me real curious. If anyone has any pics or anyone they could point me to that would be awesome. It would be the pro comp stage 1 lift also if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance.

    From the NC meet:
    Look past the spittle and you'll find the truck in the background. :)

    Is this all the pics from the meet or is there a link? I'd like to see if I can steal a couple more glances at this beauty.

    I was just trying to stay with 33's so I didnt have to re-gear it. What all will I have to do to the truck once the 6 inch lift is on there? I know re-gear with 35's, but what about the driveline and all that?

    35's look better IMO, but 33's seem more practical. I'd almost shoot for some 34's if I got a 6" on my truck.

    Stock the way god made her. (FOR NOW)
    i would regear and get a solid drive shaft if i went up to 35's simply because you would loose power and the way people drive here, i need all the power i can get...
    But i would get 35's if i had a 6" because they look good or if you off road i would go with a nice set of 295's

    Here's mine. Pro-comp Stage 1. I have been running 35's for about 30,000 miles without re-gearing. Runs great you'll love it.

    Oh ok, so what about the UCA's? I know they will need to be changed but can they go a little while or do they have to be changed right away.

    I dont think its really 100% necessary to do UCAs as they arent put at much more of an angle with the 6". There are longer knuckles included with the lift so that factory geometry is maintained, thus the only reason is for extra strength if you're concerned about extra leverage on them with the larger tires.

    Ok, thanks everyone, I really appreciate all the feed back. I love the look of the long bed with a 6 inch lift and 35's, but I think it looks like the short bed can go either way. I'm just curious what a 33" M/T would look like.
