    I am about to purchase a 6" pro-comp suspension lift and install the 35x12.50x18 pro-comp x-terrain tires mounted on dick cepek dc1 wheels. Does anyone know what type of gears would be sufficient after this upgrade? :glasses:

    4.56's would be perfect! That red beast will look great with the new goodies so post some pictures when finished.

    Gears have nothing to do with lift, it's all about tire size. For example my jeep has 3.55 and 33 inch tires when the stock size is like 28 or 29. It makes it pretty sluggish and underpowered. If I upgraded to 4.10's I'd get most of my power back. With 3.73's you could run 33's and not notice a power difference. That being said, gears aren't cheap.
