cost effective gear shop

i am getting ready to drop some cash into my neglected 2001, 2.3, 5spd,
3.73s.reg cab shortbed.i am running 235/75/15 wild country rvts now and when the fuel pump goes ill be doing a 3in body lift with bigger tires then.but tires can wait.what i am wondering about now is where is the most cost effective place to get some 4.10s or 4.56s off the net.i am pretty sure i have the 7.5 and i figure other people have swapped so any info would be appreciated.thanks ahead.

If your going to 4.10's, it's probably cheaper to just upgrade your axle to an 8.8 that has 4.10s already. You might get one that has limited slip too.

No info needed, any Ranger 8.8 will bolt right on up to your truck.

goto a junkyard, look at ALL rangers that have a 8.8, and see what gearing they have, when u find the one u want with 4.10's(prolly from a auto truck) buy it bring it home and bolt it in, shouldnt take a mildly mech inclinded person more then a hour or so
