I figured I would make the group because, honestly, we have a ton of 2WD members who Prerun and Offroad. I mean a ton.
yyeeessss thats a very true statement that all 4x4 guys over look because they think there 4x4 is the best.

Some good all terrain tires go a long way. LS or a locker doesn't hurt either.

BUMP, ever since the spindle lift I've felt high and mighty LOL.

I need to hit a mild trail and a little mud hole. I wants to off road!

I also need to remember I have a 2WD 4 cylinder on mild ATs with a LS unit that only works when it wants HAHA

haha last time i took my 2wd ranger off road, it spun a bearing, about 20 feet from the end of the trail, it was good though i was riding in this nice deep rut on the side which i ran though on the way down, it was great up until the bearing spun. lol.

Any of the members of this great group has a 2.3 inline 4 (of course 2wd) running on 30' or 31' bfg's? I'm looking for some feedback about mpg drop and power response loss on the gas pedal...

depends on which gears you got ... if you got 4:10's it should be fine, but another member here with a 99 with the 2.5 put em on with 3:73's and it hurt a bit on gas.

My trucks a 2.3L 2wd with 31's(not bfg's) gutless on stock gears but still drivable, highway mileage goes up, city milage goes down.If you wanna keep your truck in the same powerband as it is stock I would bump up your gear ratio. Since your truck came stock with 4.56's i would bump up to 4.88's.After i regeared mine from 4.10's to 4.56's it almost feels stock as far as power goes, Mpg's are close to what i got stock.

What size are your stock tires? The Noth American 4 cylinders come stock on
225/75R15's

235-75-R15 it was in his sig.

I saw 4.56s would be fine for 31s. it will feel different that stock for him but considering 4.0 guys run 4.88s with 35s I don't think that would be a good move for 31s lol

And chevy guys run 4.10's on 35's!! Ford set that truck up with a higher ratio for a reason best to keep it there.If he hauls or tows with that thing it will put more stress on the drivetrain.

Ive learned more from this last posts than what Ive learned about gears in a month.
So in conclusion:

- Up to 31 tires I can go with my stock gears, I wont harm a lot mpg and power, but it will be slight noticeable a decrease in both.

- I should regear up to 4.88 if I want to keep the stock performance in mpg and power band.

And just like always.... the money will have for shure the last word.

I think I cannot afford the new regearing right now, So I might just go with 30" instead of 31". considering that my truck came with 235/75 R15 (almost 29") that should not be a problem. (and actually I use to tow around 2K lb with my Ranger)

And Ill wait for the regearing until I can afford a locker too. Then I will only have to open de diff one time.

Thanks for sharing your expertise.

It depends on engine size. A V8 can run 31s with like 355s just fine.
