i ran 5.29's with 33's and it was pretty slow(slower than stock) really nice off road but still too slow on road, go 5.29's and 35" tires, BAM had 4.56's and 35" boggers and didnt break anything for almost a year, (CV started to make lots of noise)

yukon are supposedly good. mine are still in a box, so they work great so far.

yukon gears are great for the money. 5.29's and 35's put you right back to your stock power curve. Like g-rizzle said, 33 are a little small and if you do higway driving, you will end up with a top speed of around 110km at4000rpm

i run 37's with the 5.29's and its fine.

I can sell ya some gears and install, but we are in Kelowna.

if you need some gears or installed shoot me a pm

ive ran 33s with the stock 4:56s for quite awhile now and never had any trouble.
Takes a bit more skill to get up the big stuff than if you have 35s (especially with long wheelbase ex cab) but makes you a better driver and keeps cash in your pocket.
what size of tires do you have now and how big do you wanna go?

do they make 5.29's for ifs?

i am running 33's on stock gears i want 35's so i can get a little more serious off road

Define serious. To me serious starts with a locker not bigger tires.

I go bad places with stock ifs suspension 32" tires and locker and good armor.

If your talking about canopener, 6ft under every weekend then your barking up the wrong tree with your IFS.

yeah thats the truth, bigger tire just give you that little bit more of ground clearance, a locked yota(ifs) will go a hell of a lot farther then an open yota on big tires.

well i have bought two arb air lockers so im throwing those in with my gears, i just want to get somemore ground clearance with the bigger tires

buy some spare cv shafts as well, and the tools to change it all on the trail, if you are going to go bigger then go with some 36" iroks

When your finished breaking a dozen or so CV's let me know I"ll buy that IFS ARB off of you.[15] No I'm serious.
