2003 freedom edition tire/gear ratio

Im installing 32" tires and a 4" lift - but will be doing a lot of highway driving as well - any suggestions on the best gear ratio for this combination

What transmission and axle ratio do you have now?

You need to see what gear ratio you have. Most likely you have 3.07 but do a search and you will find a lot of threads on how to determine that. I currently run 32's with 3.07 gearing and it is not ideal but it works. I live in Idaho and do a lot of flat highway driving so that makes it bearable for me.

Great, look at the tag bolted to your rear differential cover where it will give you the axle ratio the factory installed, 3.07 or 3.73.
