Looks like the VC lift is a great setup. Waiting for them to develop the kit for T-350!
I've grappled with taller tires vs gearing also, but with a diff't consideration. Taller tires are equivalent to taller gearing and result in loss of low-range power and torque. All the ECU re-flash would do is adjust rpm/shift prompts to account for this. To fully address the larger tires/gearing change, you'll likely need to swap the either the axle or gearing out to a 3:73 to regain the stock 3:31 or so gear ratio.
My tires are not quite as tall as yours, but I've been mulling over the axle/gear swap to 3:73 for some time now. Definitely want to retain the LSD, and may consider a locker "while we're in there...'. All that said, I haven't done the legwork on any of this as of yet, so welcome the Forum's experience, resources, and expertise.
