Icon5 Should I?

I have a 96 Ford banger 2.3L, I'm supposed to go Monday and get a 3 inch BL and bigger tires, probably 33's... the question is.....should i do it? I've heard the 4 banger doesn't have enough juice to handle this... but i don't see why not...I guess i just want your input on it.

you will need to swap in new gears. The most logical thing to do would be go to a junk yard and pull and 8.8 axle out of a ranger or explorer that will come with a little lower gear set and if you get an axle out of an explorer you might even get a limited slip.

jus go get a 8.8 with 4.10s and go 32s...33s will be alil much on a 2.3 unless you upgrade to 4.56 gears
