    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc

    actually its 16.7394 and 13.2967. but close.


    in reality op, it depends on what tire how wide and so forth. with 33s on a 4 cyl look to drop about 3 and with 35s look to drop about 3 more and go through clutches every couple months. unless you re egar

    Ya, and OP I would strongly urge you to re-gear if you go that big. I am over-geared and love it!

    Stock tires on my truck around town is 285-300 miles before the gas light goes on. I just slapped 35's on and now around town with stock gears is like 220-240 before the gas light goes on. Sucks but gotta pay to play =) lol

    you also have a V6 and probably not taking into consideration your actually going father than the 220-240 miles due to the increase in size :) so its not as bad as you think

    if my math is correct, 35's are 13.6% larger. 220x1.136 is around 248.6 :D which still sucks but is better than 220
