3.0 with 33s ... I think you'll be happy with 4.56s ... I have 4.88s with my 35s and I'm glad I didn't get 56s ... When I had 33s with 4.10s it sucked ...

4.56

i have 33's and 3.73 gears(stock) and a 4.0 its not to bad, gas mileage is 11city/14hwy.... i would get 4.10's better gas mileage and youll get most of you power back, now if you plan on upgrading tires in the future(35's or bigger) i would get 4.56 or even 4.88's

its a common rule between ford, chevy, dodge mid size trucks. Usualy when you get 33's, you get 4.56's, which will bring it back to about the stock ratio

Hmmm, most people I see with 33's and 4.10's don't upgrade to 4.56's.

You are moving to Germany, civilian or military?

that link is for a specific tranny and also a V8.. we have 4 bangers and V6s.. hence why we need taller gears.

i could show a very realistic calculator but its on another Ranger site and i feal that its not right to post the link here

with 33s and the 4.0 4.10s are very comfortable. with 33s, the 3.0 and definitly the 4-banger will want 4.56s...

No it isnt... and yes you can post TRS links here. It's fine as long as you're not advertising for them.
