    What gearing should I use? and how should I go about doing the gear change?

    this will be with 33" tires on stock 17" wheels.. Spidertrax spacers or adapters------maybe

    im not sure about the gearing on the 2nd gen trucks but the gears dont depend on the lift its all about the tires you shouldnt have to re gear with a 33'' tire i dont think you should have to re gear until you get to a 35'' tire but i could be mistaken

    Oh ok. Thanks Jamie. So the stock gears CAN handle 33" tires...... There goes Toyota again thinking ahead of the game :thumbsup:
