I would say that yes, I will be going to 36" or 37" tires once I do a spring over, but it may be well over a year before I get that done.

I'm really just looking for feedback from those who are used to the mtn passes and such. Thank you for the input!

My previous 62 had 4:11's a doubler and V8 with 35MTR's. It had great off road gearing and here in the flats it was great. The hills would pull it down and in that truck 56's would have been perfect!
