Here is my predicament...I hoped to have 33s by now. My goodyear wrangler mtrs have lasted me 45,000 miles and still have half the tread left. They are 32s. I need gears but not sure whcih ones. I dont want to buy new tires until these are worn. I do alot of highway driving and with gas prices these days, I dont want to suffer a huge decrease in that department. What are some of your suggestions and reasons for those suggestions?

I know it has been discussed. And from reading what I have, I am still undecided. If you look as to how long I have been around, I am not exactly a noob here. Dont assume everyone is a noob and tell them to search just becuase you dont know the answer to the question.

If you're definitely going with 33's and do a good bit of offroading then 4.88's, with mostly highway then 4.56's.
Well it would be a mix of both. I try to wheel as much as I can, but I drive about 2000+ miles a month also. See why I am undecided. I know it is hard to get a good mix between wheeling and driving but I guess that I what I am trying to do.

I once saw a few pics of someone's truck after he put on a set of 33 mtrs and 4.56 gears. In his writeup he showed before and after pics of stock and then 33s and gears. The RPM was about 100-200 over what it was stock. That's the way I would go with 33s because I do a hell of a lot of driving like you.
You are talking about I believe he went with 4.88s with 33s. Not sure about that. I would have to check. His speedo was also way off.
