i just asked that same question today. i have a 02 ranger edge 2WD 3.0 auto and i have 33's on right now. i have the stock 3.73's and it feels kinda slow when i accelerate. from what i understand from searching is that 4.10's are ok with the 33's but sooner or later your gonna want to go to 35's or maybe bigger. im gonna go with the 4.56's myself cause i want to get 35's soon.

3.73/33's and hills or steep grades will suck a bit.
