yeah 4 low top speed = like 45 - 50 mph at 6000 rpm.. i dont recommend it.. 4 high i drive in it alot in the winter.. its not bad.. some say its bad to drive 90 mph in 4 high.. but thats probably about it..

How much slack should be taken out? I'd think having it too tight could snap something.. Anyone know of this?
idk i did mine really tight but mine also has a spring over a piece of plastic... but i think you cant TC ranger over 03 might be o4 not sure

From my experience of three seperate times against the 4.3 vortec v. my 4.0 SOHC... I've completly smeared all of them, didnt matter if it was from a dead stop or rolling at 40.
