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.

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.

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.
