    I'm getting them with my 33"s. I'm also going to be about 600lbs over stock dry, and 1300lbs+ with passengers and gear. Mostly I chose them because I know how the truck feels at higher RPM and how weak it feels at ~1500 rpm going 70.

    It's happiest with stock gears going 40-55, that's just unrealistic for 90% of my miles. I'm either trying to keep up with traffic going 70+ or on city roads/off-road going 20-35.

    I'm by no means a lead footer, I never felt like there was an issue with stock tires until I added a lot of weight, like 1000lbs. With 33s that got worse. Even now I'm still okay with how it drives around town, it's mostly at highway speed where I'm either squeezing it hard to stay in 5th at 65 or it's burning fuel like elon musk going 70 in 4th

    I see all these comments about doing the front locker at the same time as the gears. Is that just because it's easier to do it while everything is apart?

    Can I do my gears now and add a front locker later?

    Nothing but good, pair that with a tune, and you'll get way more smiles per gallon.
