I ran 33's the whole life of the truck (~80k miles) and I just went up to 37's and now I'm really wanting more power. My engine is bone stock and it now struggles to maintain highway speed in 5th on even modest grades unladen where it had no trouble on 33's (mine is the lighter std cab, not the extended cab). So 35's are the max I'd personally go w/out engine mods on 4.10 gears based on what I'm now getting although it's possible my cats are plugged so next wk I'm getting relieved exhaust (Magnaflow cats + flowmaster muffler) and I'll post an update once I see how that does. After that I'm going straight to a massaged throttle body and cold air intake, then 1.7:1 roller rockers if I need it but I wouldn't trade the 37's for anything so I may ultimately go to 4.56 or 4.88 gears depending on how much difference the engine mods make.
