What gears do you have in it already?

You should be fine either way, it may suck, and you'll have less power, but it's livable.

Yea that does sound right although I believe that they also came geared in 3.07. 4.10 would be the best gears from what I have researched for 33s and the auto tranny. It may depend on how many hills you have where you live too.

This is what I have now:
4.10 gears
33x12.5x15 tires
35 Teeth speedometer gear

I am very glad that I went with this. It has plenty of power when i need it. RPM is 2.9-3k at 70mph.

If you have 3.73 gear then you are fine. If 3.07 gear then you will be lugging.
