    So I have a general question for all. I have a 2011 DC. Right now I'm running 32's with a front spacer and a rear add-a-leaf. That's basically a 3" lift; right? I'm trying to decide on staying at 3" and going to 33's or a 6" with 33's. I don't tow alot or anything like that. Why would I need to change the Gear Ratio? I would like to do it myself, not the gears but the lift. I don't really want to spend over $1,500, but if I have to: well then it is what it is. The whole gear thing is really throwing me for a loop. If y'all could help me out, I would really appreciate it.:mudding:

    Hey man. Alot of people would re gear if you went to 33's. Going to 6" I believe you would have to spend more than $1500 to do it right. Me personally with that budget I would get rid of those spacers and do a complete 3" lift kit and stick with the 32s so you wouldn't have to re gear.

    Sweet truck BTW.

    I could see regearing with a 4cyl but plenty of guys run 33"s with the v6 and stock gears.
