Oh ok. The 3" body was just an idea. Just like the way it looks sitting at 6". I have a guy who is going to re-gear once the new wheels and tires come in.

It's an automatic transmission.

Rather just see how I like the 3" suspension lift before doing the body lift. Pretty happy the way she sits at the moment. Can't wait to see her in her new wheels and tires next week.

Thanks guys.

Not sure if I asked this question already but, does anyone know or have the layout of how the Opel frontera has the winch built into the bumber? Not sure if I want all the added weight of a metal bumper. Thinking of maybe making a plate to attach to the front of the frame to hold a winch. I just want to be set up for self recovery.

What are you going to regear to? 4.30, 4.56, 4.77 ??? What size tires did you decide on?

I decided to go with 285/75/16

As far as regearing, I'm not too sure how all that works. Need to do some research. I just heard that it is recommend once you get bigger tires to regear so I asked my boy who owns a shop and he said one of his guys can do it. He is also the guy I will most likely get my wheels and tires from.

You need 4.56 or better, I have 265/75-16 now and 4 56 with the v6 5 speed it drives like a champ. If I were you id look for a set if 4.56 or 4.77s, the 4.56s up in the front can come straight out of a trooper. But the 4.56 rears are hard to come by.

I do have a set of 4.77s id give you a good deal on if your interested. That way you get the bigger tires without all the torque loss.

Rodeo814 ,I buy the 4.77's front and rear from Egagnon086. That would give you all the power back. I myself would like to have more gear but can't right now. My 4.30's do ok for now with 265/75/16's. You could make that winch mount plate and weld or bolt it to front of frame like the Opel ,less weight without metal bumper,I like the way it looks. 8)

Do you guys think the 285's are too big?

Appricate the info on regearing. I'll def be reaching out for that.

285/75s are about as big as you can really go on a rodeo without, extreme compromises in handling.you will probably want to check your wheel bearings or have them serviced the same time you get tires. Its alot more weight that the OEM size.

Totten your 04 isn't a direct comparison to His '00, you have the different trans and tc. The auto in the '00 is the 4l30 IIRC.

But Id say regearing are a must, for any 33" tire in a rodeo.

So from what little I know, having the 4.77 in front and rear will help with power and gas milage? and the 4.77 will work best with the 285/75/16? You have two sets available?

Yeah that all sounds good!

I may be a fool but I'm waiting for the upper control arms from Calmini to come in so I can replace my upper and lower ball joints and sway out the arms. Then I will place the order on the tires and wheels. How soon after that do you recommend I regear?

Tc is transfer case, on tottens 04 its a chain drive not gears. The 4l30 is the gm sourced trans, were I think the 04 is a different model also.

You would want to regear st the same time as tires or before usually. I have the gears you need. Just shoot me a pm.
