Re: Tire, gears and strenght conbinationl info needed
You mean 34x9.5 Swampers? They don't make a 33x9.5.
I'd lock the front end and add the birfield rings. Forget P/S for now, work on getting it later. Forget the 35's, the 33" (or 34") Swamper is the same size as most off-brand 35's anyway, so you won't gain anything there. Gearing will help, but I wouldn't stop at the GRS I, I'd add 5.12's at the same time if you can swing it. I'm running GRS I and 32" Swampers, and it's not nearly low enough to be really effective off-road.
