    Cool fabtech or cognito lift

    I think the Fabtech is better quaility and you dont want to run any tire larger than a 35 on a 1/2 ton truck. The axles just dont like anything over 35" tall.

    with 35's you will want 4.10's as a minimum. I chose 4.10s because I do 60 miles a day highway so it was for the economy side. If you will do more towing or want a little extra grunt the 4.56's are better. 4.10's are a little taller gear than the 3.73 and stock tires. I think the straight ratio conversion is about a 4.27.
