    Wanted for each out before I pull the trigger. Would like to know if anyone is running 37s with their 4.10s. Is it sluggish, what has been in your experience?

    Looking at ordering a rim and tire package from discount tire direct or something like that

    mind you i have the 6spd trans but after putting 35s on mine, theres no way i would want 37s without regear. i feel 35s could even use a regear but ive got far to many other financial priorities right now . just my opinion.

    in the event i did go with 37s, years from now when my current tires wear out, ill probly lift the front/back of the truck 2" , along with regear

    Counterpoint:

    I agree that my 6 speed truck on 4.10 and 37s is not as lively as it was on the stock tire size - but it was never a sports car and never will be.

    I don’t tow >5000ish pounds and I don’t drive it like I stole it, and am OK with 37 and 4.10. Someday it would be nice to do 5.13, but I’m not in a huge hurry to spend $3k-$4k to do it.

    I have run trails in Moab and other locations and haven’t found I was lacking the torque to get up steep inclines or over big rocks/ledges.

    PS - definitely helps to use tool to reset tire size in computer - helps trans behave much better after tire size change! Speedo correction is also a nice plus of computer tweak.

    I have put 37s on several different vehicles over the years, and there is always a negative on road impact from the larger tires. My 4.10 geared Power Wagon has had less negative impact than any other vehicle I have put 37s on. I really like the way my truck drives with 37s, and in many aspects it feels better than stock. I have regeared several vehicles after installing larger tires, with gears as low as 5.38 on a Jeep one time. But I have no desire to regear this truck, I'm perfectly happy with it.

    I have 37’s on mine with no regear, but I went with 35’s with less than 300 miles on my truck, so it was not that drastic of a change for me. Had I been used to the 33’s (let’s be honest, 31.5’s) and then gone to 37’s (which mine actually measure out to 37.0”), I may have noticed it more and considered a regearing.

    I'll have my 37x12.5x20 next month. Went with milestar Patagonia m/t and fuel off road zephyr D632 20" wheels. I'll let you know my impressions once I get them on. I also dont drive it like I stole it and dont regularly tow anything. I went with this setup for better differential height.

    I also graduated in tire sizes from stock, to 33s and from the 33s right to the 37s definitely a bit of a difference in the feel, the ride and the gas millage, BUT" for the look and the lift? its all worth it to me. 37s on a 4 inch superlift.

    So I do tow a 9k travel trailer up to high elevations. I use the truck to tow and for offloading and hunting. I currently have 35s and no issue with performance. They are wearing and so thinking of 37s....

    I just threw 37’s in my 2500 3:73 gearing camping off of 35’s. I need gears lol. But if they were 4:10 I’d thing it would be better than what I have. That’s said she moves and I still have my low end grunt to wheel. So imo you’d be fine with no regear if you don’t tow or wanna fly down the highway.
