    Actually, 4.10's would get it close to stock with 33's. A little "over geared" actually.

    wat?
    i was running 35s and i'd say the only weirdness was downshifting early while going up a hill. not really weird since the truck is compensating, but other than that, no issues.

    Has anyone tried pulling the battery for 24 hours, to get the opportunity "re-program" the transmission when going to 255/85 (80's if running 17s) or 285/75 for that matter? I'm wondering if this could help with any shifting issues that may come up.

    Or, does the auto constantly adjust its shifting map for as the driver adjsusts their driving style?
