What gearing do you have now? You might have to regear anyway.

Well, If your going to go with 35's your going to have to regear. If you go with 33's, you should regear also, but could get away with the 3.73s. GOP BIG OR GO HOME! lol

You can be like that TrePaul guy and run 35's w/ stock 4.10 gears. His mileage has suffered.

But are you tall enough for 35's??? 4" suspension + 3" body???

HEY!!! Yah, I would like to regear, but I'm gonna wait for my SAS to do the gear part.

It's not THAT bad, I still can get up and move, so don't play games with me on the road! lol

My MPG has been affected though, hopefully a tuner and efan will help me this summer lol.. I've already got MAC intake and dual flow40 exhaust!

All I know is the 3.0, 35's and 4.10's don't mix.

I have the tuner, and still my transmission was going CRAZY!

It was up to 210 degrees on the hwy and I was cringing. It won't go into OD at all.

Needless to say, I just got my truck back fromt he shop with 4.88's and it feels good :)

Don't get 35's unless your getting gears, I'd say 4.88.

if you get 35's get some gears, stock gears aren't going to cut it.

i would just run 33's, but i would have to see your truck to be the judge of 33's vs 35's.

my dad (04 EDGE) ran 35s for a few hours with his 3.0 auto and 4.10's.
theres no way i could see doing that, unless you have a manual, and it would still be a slug.

but im going to be running 4.56's and 35's by late summer, so i really can't talk smack about rangers on 35's.

35's and 4.88's are pretty nice I must say. Definetly doesn't feel like a 35 under there

I wouldn't go with 4.88's unless you plan on running a bigger tire than a 35 somewhere down the line. A buddy of mine did 4.88's in his truck (04 4.0 Auto with 35's) and he said if he were to do it over he'd go with 4.56, the 4.88's are just not tall enough of a gear and his rpm's are up there on the freeway.

It's only a couple hundred rpm difference. I'd go higher gear.

Hmm...I've never heard of anyone wanting a "lower" gear for wheeling or anytime in general. Even my buddy Kevoo on here said he would like 4.56 with his 33's (he has 4.10 now).

I mean, 4.88 isn't even that high to me, I didn't think i was even revving all that high when I got to drive it that first little bit.

I run 35s with a 4.0 5spd.. and 373's.. Its deff tall gearing for the tire on it.. and its a lil fast in first off road for creeping.. but thats what low range is for.. I get almost 20mpg with my 94 4.0 with the 35's... I dont see a problem.. its got plenty of power and torque... its not a mustang

Wow your truck must had something wrong mine stays at 160 degrees and is badass with 4.10's and a tuner.

So go with 35's hands down. If you have the money just to spend then regear but dont worry if you dont.

Gotta remember too, you have a 3.0 and I as well as WoodsRider both have a 4.0L with auto trans
