My 2016 Ram SLT 2500 CTD apparrently has 3.42 gears according to the build sheet. Will I have any issues with this gear ratio and 35" tires?

I think I have decided to go with the Thuren 2.75" coil / trackbar setup. Stock, my truck has a 2.5" rake so it may be slightly high in the front with the new springs until they "settle". I also plan on installing a rear air bag setup also so I won't sag in the rear when towing.

I just did a 2.75 and with a diesel it will sit level!

I have 3.42 and 35" and no problems. Hemi, maybe... but not feeling it with the CTD!

Just the front springs? Got any pics? I'd like to see how it sits now.
Thanks
