gears?

So I'm getting a 4inch suspension lift (procomp i think) and 33x12.50R15s to go on 15x8 rims. Am i going to have any gearing problems and will all gears still be usable?

Thanks alot

Here's a link for ya: http://www.4wheelparts.com/Tirel_gear_ratio.asp

do you have an auto or manual? you'll take a noticable hit, but it will still be drivable. you'll probably want a gear upgrade sometime in the near future.

It's a standard. What's the stock gear ratio cause I'd bet that's what I have and what do u mean by take a hit?

i mean your acceleration would suffer (take a hit). You have a 6cyl? More than likely, your ratio is 3.07 stock. you can look on the rear diff cover and there should be a small metal tag on two of the bolts indicating your gearing ratio. You'll pretty much loose the use of 5th gear by running 33's and it will take you a little while to climb to 60-65 on the highway.
I'd recommend going to 4.10s... or 4.56 if you want more offroad performance.
