    My ‘03 V6 is on 33’s with 4.88’s and am super happy. I think I would be happy with 5.29’s as well.
    But I think 4.56 wouldn’t have worked so well.
    I should mention my truck is a pig at 5700 pounds and has a supercharger.

    I'm going 33s (255/85/16), am currently light weight (OEM bumpers, softtopper), plan on getting a supercharger, and like to cruise at decent highway speed so I've been leaning 4.56 but I can see myself regretting it if I later decide to turn the truck into a pig.

    If you plan on getting larger tires, Do consider the 4.88 otherwise, good to go!

    I feel like I should do a shakedown run before I wheel with you...
    Been snowboarding most weekends as of recent, might forgo that this weekend and throw some rear disc brakes on but those aren't really necessary to wheel.
    You trying to wait for the snow to melt or good whenever?

    Good as soon as I fix my front brake line. I broke the passenger side hard line when my spindle failed a few weeks back. Haven't bothered to repair it yet. lol

    Eh, my rear locker solenoid is still messed up. But I can just disconnect the airline when I need to drive on the road so it's fine.

    Also fun on wet pavement. Makes me feel (just for a moment) like I'm heating up those slicks at the strip on Friday night.

    Watch out, some here are a bit sentimental, or get really strong feelings for others.
    I really like it though. I love attention any way I can. Also a bit dirty!!!!

    5.38s or go home.

    7.17s would be A-OK. :thumbsup:
