I can't tell if you are being serious. I mean skyjacker generically, as in huge lifts.

Certainly not a huge lift. I'm not even sure it looks that bad with 35s but I agree probably going to move up to 37s.

Yea, i was just being facetious.

Nice looking truck! 35's are fine, but 37's would be too.

I use 37" KO2s on my 3500 with aev lift. I tow heavy and load heavy. Haven't had an issue with tires, and I run them with about 24 psi. Obviously I air up when loaded heavily, or towing.
You will want to re-gear, specially if you plan to tow with it. I drove around with 37s for about two weeks with stock gears and hated how it drove, weird shift points, bogging, it just didn't drive the way it was suppose to. Re-geared added lockers, and all is well. I re-geared to 4.30s from 3.73s.

Aesthetically, I see no reason to switch tires. Your truck looks sharp the way it is. Doesn't look bad at all.

Decided to order some 37s. A few reasons.

1- my 35s Toyo AT2 extremes, while E load rated, only have 3195 rating per tire. probably fine, but below GVWR for truck. the 37 BFG AT K02 tires have 3595 per tire, as pointed out in this thread.

2- the 35s look a little too small in person

3- the Toyo AT2 extremes have been surprisingly loud over 40mph. I cant imagine the BFG will be any worse, maybe even a little better.

With this change, I will upgrade to 4.10 gears. On a 4x4 truck, I suppose this has to be done to not only rear, but front also. What have people paid to have this done. I am expecting it will probably be a couple thousand dollars.

How can I order the Procal Module? I don't see it on the AEV website, where I ordered front bumper, wheels, etc.

Thanks!

They do not sell the procal separately yet for the Ram.

What is the GVWR of your truck? Thought the max for the SRW 3500s was 11,700lbs. Surprised the Toyos are loud, I have had a couple sets of them and not noticed any noise.

The other factors for the 3500HD SRW truck are: Base Weight of 7,685 LBS (this includes a 150 LB driver and 20 LBS of misc gear) 6,000 LBS GAWR front, 7,000 LBS GAWR rear, GVWR is 11,700 LBS, payload is 4,020 LBS and the GCWR is 25,000.

If you are going to regear I would highly recommend installing the lockers like .com did. If you are already regearing the cost is pretty minimal. The lockers make the truck much more desirable on the used market and you should get more than the cost of lockers back when you sell your truck. Not to mention that you have a much more capable truck while you own it. If I had to choose I would definitely get the lockers before a winch, raised air intake, or hood.
