35's and 5.29's are almost exactly the same as stock gearing and 31's.
or you can go dual transfer cases with 4.7s in the rear case and use it like a semi truck(put your second case in low) when you need it.

dont bother with diff gears, go t-case gears or dual t-case setup, unless its your daily driver diff gears are a waste of money.

get 529's then you can pretty much run any tire you can stuff under your truck.
i have 38.5x14.5x15 tls sx's on my 4runner with a stock 22re and 529's..its heavier than pick ups and its still fine on the road.
