well to get back to your stock gearing with a 33" tire and you had a 235/75/15 stock then it would require you to be around the range of 4.88's but you need to tell us your stock tire size as well...and what your looking at getting out of it....is it a dd or a play truck? and do you want to drive it on the eway or do you want more low end out of it...there is alot of things to consider. therangerstation.com has a section under the tech articles or forum i believe that has a calculator for tire size. try that

im still running IFS and dont plan on changing it out, right now it feels like it has gears in it, im running 33's currently.. not really sure what gears are in the front and wouldnt know how to check, the back is the same way except i know how to check that...its more of a DD than anything else, it runs in sand/light trails and water crossing mostly...id like to keep the milage about the same. i already have a decent amount of giddyup with the throttle body and intake..if it makes a difference.
i really would like to get it back close to stock gearing but will look at the possibility of more low end

front is still a D35 (just make sure when ordering you get the right D35 year gears) and the rear is just the plain jane 8.8
