hey guys new to the board here. i am runnin 37x13.50x17 with 4.88 gears and mine is not sluggish at all. i dont know if those bigger wheels will make a difference, but the big thing is getting your gear ratio to where it needs to be.

Welcome to the ORG!!! Yeah, I agree! The key to getting power to the ground with larger tires is proper gearing. By the way, create an intro thread and post up some pics of you and your truck!
