    Running 33"s and planning to for awhile. Gear calculator says 4.34 brings it back to stock RPMs. So was figuring 4.56 since it'd give me a little more torque at the wheel. You said 4.88 at the last trail run. I'm ordering the 3rds on Wednesday and would like to make a well informed choice. What are the pros and cons of 4.88?

    If you're gonna stay with 33's get 4.56's

    I think Silas is trying to work me into getting 35s. ;)

    Hopefully he'll chime in with his reasoning.
