Another tire ?

I currently have 32x11.5s , was wondering if it would be a problem going to 33x12.5s I have more than enough lift so thats not the concern, but i do have stock axles and 3.07 gears on a 3 speed auto, new 4.0 engine.the 32s are no prob at all in terms of highway speed , so is there any thing i should worry about? thanks

You will lose some top end speed and will need to change your speedo gear in the transfer. If you are OK with it being a little more sluggish then you should be ok. Ideally you would want to regear though.

How much would it cost to regear? To run 33x12.5 because I am also running 32x11.5 right now and wanting to upgrade
