6.4 guys, with 3.55 gears running 35" or bigger tires.

I want to know how your low end power is with running larger tires on the 3.55 gear set. Do you have a lot of lag while leaving a stoplight or sign? I want to go bigger but don't want to make the truck a dog ya know. Let me hear your opinions. Thanks.

I went from stock, to 35s, to 37s. I couldn't tell a diff. between the 35s and stockers. The 37s lag a t-tiny bit, but nothing that bothers me at all.

I have 37's and you can tell a big difference than the stockers but not enough to bother you as long as you have a good tuner, but if you are stock with 37 the truck feels like a turd

ive got a 2.5 inch leveling kit with 35x12.5x18 toyo open country m/t and the truck drives the same as far as starting and stopping and cruising around, the noise is much louder but that wast to be expected and the downfall is my mpg dropped by about 2 mpgs. my truck is mechanically stock for now
