I'm running BFG mud terrain 35x12.5x17 tires. I'm running a 700r4 tranny and 3.52 gears (stock) I think. I'm not sure what tranfer case comes stock in an 87 suburban, but I'm sure that is what it is. If anyone know what transfer case comes stock I'd appreciate knowing.
Thanks for all the input.

You forgot to mention what type of wheeling you will be doing. Will it be moderate stuff like a little mud, and some trail stuff,... if it's things like that then the set up you have will probably work fine. You gears being 3.42's are a little tall for the tire size, and 3.73-4.10's would probably be better, but if you can live with them then it should be no problem. Going with a bigger tire, and/or heavy trail duty will start to press into the limits of your 10 bolts... but it can be done with a driver that's easy on the gas.
