Did your old truck have the 3.55 or 3.73 rear end? I have 3.55 and don't know if I can justify the cost to regear as well when it comes time for new tires. I sold my travel trailer so all I tow is a 12 foot enclosed trailer. I may end up going with the 295/70/17, which I noticed u dropped to with the toyos so it won't be as hard on the transmission. I want the 315s as they are offered in a lot more tires than the 295s and would fill the wheelwells nicely. decisions, decisions.
