I've got a gear question too... thinking about going 4.56's or 4.88's, i've got a 4 cyl. with 32's.... whats gonna happen with each as far as RPM's, gas mileage and etc.?

That being an oddball tire size makes it tough. If you were doing 33's I would tell you 4.56 for best gas mileage and 4.88 for best driveability.
