what are the stock gears in your truck now?
According to my chart 35" tires need a minimum of 4.10 gears, but best overall performance would be had running 4.56's.

You don't have to change gears.... the truck will still move. It will just be a little more doggy. But if you have the money and want to change them I'd go for it. 4.10's would be best for a daily driver with 35's. 4.56's would put your highway RPM pretty high.

only up to 2800 rpm at 60mph... 4.10s are roughly 2200 rpm at 60 mph..

yes you have to have the same in both front and rear.

i have 35s and 3.92s and my truck still kicks ass.

i can light my tires up and spin all through 1 st gear into 2nd some.

canadianhemipride has 3.55s with 35s and has no issues at all.

it's already expensive for the lift and wheels and tires...so ya if you have the money..go for it. but you don't need it at all
