gearing question

Hello, i have a 91 ranger with 3.45 gears and 235/75/15 tires and i feel like my rpms are too low and it dosent give me as much torque. I was thinking about getting a new rear end with limited slip and i was wondering witch rear end would be better for me.

Yea you might want to change that real soon my friend. If you want to change gears to give you a little more acceleration I would suggest 4.10's. 3.73 wouldn't be a bad gear for you but probably not a big enough difference for you to really notice. The only down side to 4.10's with that size wheel is your going to be pulling a good amount of RPM's on the freeway and it may harm your gas mileage. Another perk to 4.10s is if you decide to go to a larger tire in the future you will all set.
