  1. Well you have a Vortec 5.7 as well. I have the TBI. Our '96 Suburban has the Vortec 5.7 so I've had first hand experience with both motors and the Vortec pumps out quite a bit more power.
  2. Will mess with your mileage a little and power, but not that huge of a difference IMO
  3. Really? I thought steeping up the tire size that much over stock could screw up your tranny somehow? Not to mention killing power and gas mileage...
  4. Don't have to regear, just restores the power band for the engine a bit.
  5. Ouch... Maybe I'll just go with a 4" with 33's. But either way, I'm lifting it eventually!
  6. Re-gear ran around 1600 I think total with the tru-trac
  7. hmm... i thought you had to extend the driveshafts with a 6" lift. But that's not a bad thing that you don't have too, it saves more money! How much was the re-gear? I've heard they can get pricey
  8. No extensions, just the 6" RCD Kit, tires, and I did regear to 4:56's when I had the chance.LIFT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Sweet... did you have to do any driveshaft extensions? I'm looking to lift mine when I can afford it and I'm stuck between a 4 and 6".
  10. Thanks for the picture comment. Yes, they are 35's
