    Any idea what size tire a 3.4 can handle with 5.13 gears? I'm thinking about running 38/15.50 r15 tsl's but I really want to try the 16/40 r16 ltb's though. What do you all think? On another note I'm either going to do a v8 swap or s/c the 3.4 sometime next year. Havent really made my mind up on what way I want to go with that yet. Thanks for any input

    You shouldn't have a problem running 40's with 60's under the truck. There is tons of guys running 40 + inch tires on Pirate drop in the SC on the 3.4 and it will be even better.
