Gear and Tire ???

I am getting ready to order 35ís for the Ranger. I currently have 33ís with the 8.8 axle and 4.10 gears. I want to change gears to 4.56ís, but it might be a month or so before I can get that done. My first question is will it hurt anything running the bigger tires for a month are so before I re-gear? Secondly in your opinions what brand of gears are the best for our trucks and who has the best prices on gears? Thirdly is it necessary to do both front and back? Thanks

you will be fine, auto trans does not care for 4.10 and 35's but they do ok, if you have a tranny cooler then your good, manuals you almost dont even need to regear for a long while unless you want too, btw nice truck does it just have a superlift and body or just superlift...?

with an auto tranny you will be fine for a while, but you will still need to regear to at least 4.56's........

i would recommend either Genuine Gear, or Precision Gear for the gears....

Just BFG / AT's on 15X10 DC-1 Rims, getting tired of the classic look.
