just to come up and be a ***** lol,here i am, ran a exploder with a a4ld, lemme tell ya, 3.27's and 35" tsl sx's.....are no fun AT ALL, it still had some giddie up, but nowhere near stock, for 35's and a 4.0 id run 4.56's, and maurice, engine power does have alot todo with what gears u run, the idea is to have the same performance as stock, so if im buildin a truck, and i put a 5.0 into it along with my np435, i dont gotta regear the rears low like king kong.....ill ahve the power and gearing with 3.55 gears that a truck with a 302 and c6 would have with 4.88's

correct.

i have been watching.

seems no one has talked about the PCM having the factory tire size and axle ratio programed into the "flash".

any time you alter these things you will loose power and could have an affect on drivetrain parts IE automatic transmissions.

what it boils down to is this, if your truck came with 29" tires and 4.10 gears, now you have changed the tire size to 35" and have not changed the final ratio, well its not ok, your truck is having a hard time figuring out what to do (PCM) and damage will come soon i promise. keep tricking your narrow little mind into thinking its ok.


now however, if you own a say 1970ish truck with no computer controls then maybe you could get away with not changing the final drive ratio.

Shane, just to clear something up for you, he has a 5 speed auto transmission. He has the 5R55E. In '97, Ford started phasing out the 4 speed autos and started using the 5 speeds.

Didn't know that.......but i'm pretty sure i've driven a couple 01+ 4spd's. Could be mistaken though.

Believe me when i say this....



35's.....



it's SOOOOO much better to be properly geared to your tires. holy cow what a differnece 4.88:1's make compared to my old 4.10's. it's completely worth the $700 i have invested into a gear swap.

get yourself a junkyard 8.8 w/ 4.10 gears....should only be about $200 or even cheaper.

I know you should re-gear it would be way better. That said I ran my ranger 4.0 auto 4.10's with 36's for three years and I could roast the **** out of my tires, do whatever I wanted off road, had the truck pegged at 120mph, from a stop mash the gas and spin well get a long chirp outa the tires. I had the truck down the outer banks and you guys know how the sand is there not packed down at all. I could ride around in two-wheel drive. (did just to see if I could) And the truck was plenty strong enough in 4wd. I also hauled plenty of boats with it like that. When I got my '94 F-150 Back in march of this year I towed a 34' flatbed trailer down outside of D.C. in MD to get, and brought it back with the ranger. Never had any problems, ran 70-75 all the way up 95 I was able to keep up with traffic. I never had any trans., motor, or rearend problems out of the truck.

So is it doable heck yhea! Without any problems, though I'm sure I'd of enjoyed the truck way more with some 4:88's. My buddy had a '97 F-150 we SAS'd in fact he bought Fabritech's first ever SAS kit for the '97+ trucks. When we did that he put 4:88's in it and ran 39.5 Boggers that thing lacked a little but was by no means a slouch.

Oh yhea I whooped on a 01 1500-dodge hemi and barely took a '04 f-150 4.6 with that set up. All I had performance wise was a super chips programmer, K&N drop in filter, and Gibson duals. So not a whole lot there.
