    Hey gang,
    i got a 98 4 cylinder 5 spd 4wd and with the help of TW i found out i have 3.58 gears :facepalm::

    im running the lame 225's now, but im looking to get new meats in the near future. my first inclination is to get 30x9.50s but i wouldnt mind some 31x1050s. is my truck gonna be a complete dog with the 31s? any advice or experience with this is much appreciated!


    TW is the shit
