I am looking into maybe 38s for sure 37s got them on now. My thinking is putting a low mileage dually rear end in in with the 4.30 ratio. The reasons are it will lower ratio and still have a factory setup rear end. I can probably get one cheap. It will widen the truck ,I heard, an inch on each side which is what I want for a 4.5 lift and factory tires to make it look less top heavy and it is heavier duty. As far as I know everything will bolt up.

Problem is that the wheel ratio on an 05 plus with the 4.30s is 200mm instead of 170mm. I'm not sure if I could change out the axles to earlier 99-04 axles with the 170 or not. What are ya'll thoughts. I don't believethe front would matter. I could trade someone out and swap rotors and be fine on it. What are ya'll thoughts on this? I would be out 1200 bucks if changing gears and probably not have as good as factory gear setup and not have a little width to make the tires stick out like I want.
