4.56

hi guys, i was thinking today about regearing my ranger. right now i have 33x12.5x15's and i was thinking about going to 35's when my new wheels come in. what i was wondering is, are 4.56's the way to go? that is what i understand from most of my searching. second is, approximately how much would it cost me to order and have them installed on my truck? any opinions from people that are currently running this setup would be great. thanks for the input guys.

probably about a grand for parts and installation

as for gears i cant really help ya, i went 4.10s to 4.88s and now to 5.13s,
one thing i do commonly see is 4.56s with 4.0 so im not sure what i would recommend with a 3.0

PM Yessick, he just put in 4.56 in his 2 wheeler
What gears do you have now and what trans auto/manual??


Oh you just have a 2 wheel drive....Itll be a lot cheaper for you
itll be like 200 for the gear and install should be around 300 or so??

Call around your local places for install prices, just one set of gears isnt much at all

really...that's parts and installation? i went around pricing today, and all the places i went were not able to give me an estimated price. they just said that i would have to pretty much wait and see. i even got that same answer from a shop that specializes in drivetrain and differentials.

Last time I priced it, install was gonna be around $350 + gears locally. I have 4.10s stock and I'm planning to regear to 4.56s when done lifting and 35s are on. I got the 3.0 with a manual...

ok...thanks i needed to know what other people paid for theirs. so i don't get screwed over by these people. one guy told me that i would have to do something with the transmission and the speedometer to make it accurate. is there any truth to this?
