Info Req: 4.0 SOHC, 5spd, 33x12.50, and 4.10 owners chime in!!

Hey.

Give me your overall experience with the 01+ 4.0L combined with the 5spd manual, 33x12.50's, and 4.10 gearing. I don't really remember what 4.10's and 32's felt like and how it performed compared to my current 4.88's and 35's.

Would also like to know your engine RPM's at 70mph and 80mph.

Spit out some mileage numbers too....I know they won't be too far off from what I'm getting(which for some reason is insanely awesome. lol).


Just exploring my options.

Thanks ya'll.

Shane

Did something happen to your truck that I missed? Like breakage?

I've got that exact setup, at 70mph I'm running near 2500rpm. I can still turn and burn the tires with no problem, and I love the grip of the 12.5" tires. I've noticed since switching over from 10.5" tires that I've lost 1mpg, I'm now averaging about 19.5mpg.

Yeah....I'm right about 2500 at 70 as well...but the math isn't making sense! lol. At 80 i'm at 3,000, 75 around 2800 or so.

I love my set up.

I have 295/75/16's which is a 33.25x11.75.

I think my 4.10's do a great job with the meats. I average 17.5 mpg which is 75% city and 25% highway.

I have no problems with mine.

That's making sense to me. What's the confusion?

If you're moving down to 33's, does this mean the BL is coming off too?

My math is telling me 33's and 4.56 is VERY close to 35's and 4.88 in overall gearing/drivability. Geared slightly lower than my stock off the showroom floor 4.10 and 30.5's(approx 4%). Just kinda confused.

I think the Superlift and 33's would be a sweet look.

Yes via scangaugeII set at either -4% or +4%. I don't remember at this time but it is accurate as confirmed by the LEO's radar gun and the 'mile post check'. I'd check but I'm too lazy to take the battery out of the Subaru and put in the Ranger.

there's a guy that runs around here with a superlift and 33's it doesn't look bad but being double lifted and on 35's looks soo much better. its just not as practical.

Plus with all the work and time that you have put in your ride it would'nt make much sense to go "backwards".

Most of my driving is on county roads and highways, and it's about 40 miles one way to work. With only about 5 miles of stop and go traffic in there, my mpg stays pretty good.

t5 cents, shane has a 4.0L. you 3.0L has to work a lilttle hard to turn those tires.

3:73s and 31's are a factory option. it can't be that bad for milage.

Im running 33's/4.10s but have the OHV. I'm at like 2700 @ 70.

I don't think this combo is that great power wise. I had these gears back when I had 31's and THAT was killer. Guess I'm spoiled but 4.10 and 33's is not ideal IMO even on the 4.0. MPG wise, this is okay I guess, on pure freeway I'm getting 17-17.5mpg and that's with 11 year old O2 sensors. (but I did clean out my TB and that upped my MPG). Hoping to see 18-19 freeway and 15 city with new O2 sensors.

4.56 is in my future for sure. There was a guy on here who was talking about how he got better MPG with 4.56 / 33's than he did with 4.10 / 33's....

I'm getting better mileage with 4.88 and 35 compared to 4.10 and 32. Even though my rpms are significantly higher....got the engine where it was making some power to keep it moving with less throttle. Looooove it.
