Thats exactly why I swapped my CRAPPY 3.55 for some SWEET 4.56
My truck pulls harder than it did on stock 33's with 3.55's.

I hated driving my truck on 37's with 3.55. especially going up hills (small) that felt like mountains. It was, as you said it, hunting for gears and my take off was just horrible but once she got moving, she still could pull hard.

What did you want for your wheels?
You PM me the info!? Or Ill PM you.

I have a set of 37 Toyos... but I just found out my boss has an extra set of new 35 Toyos.... so I may end up going 35s, as much as I love the look it will help with the 3.55 gears

I wish I could see a RCX lift with bilstein struts on 35s and one on 37s to compare the difference in look.. I definitely want it to ride a little higher than just a 6" on 35s.. But I doubt the bilsteins will make enough difference on their own.

So I have a 2011 sport and this is how your truck looks with just a 6" rcx lift and 20x10 rims with 35x12.5r20 tires. There is nothing else aftermarket cause your truck is awesome and I would like mine to look similar?

As far as I know that is all he is running. Definitely looks slick.

By the way my last comment wasnt a punch at 6" on 35s, I just am looking to go a little higher.. i've had multiple vehicles on 6" lifts and 35s, and I've had a diesel on 6" and 37s and another 1/2 ton on 12" on 35s, 37s, and 40s.. I am just wanting the height of an 8" and 37s... and am trying to decide if i'll be happy on a 7ish" on 35s.. just my personal taste. Your truck is awesome.

What gears are you running? See I am wanting about the same lift height as you but want to run 35s, and I am curious how it will look with 35s... I drove a 2011 yesterday we had on our lot with a 6" and 35s and it wasnt high enough for me... I sound difficult i know

ya... ive 355s which is why ill probably stick with 35s... See I had a Sierra with a 10-12" 3rd Coast suspension lift on 35s at point, and I loved the height.. So I am hoping with the bilsteins and RXC combined i'll get close to the height my sierra had.. When I had a 6" on the sierra it sat much lower than the new Rams do on 6"
