Having a bit of a conundrum...

I've been researching on the forums and I stumbled across an upgrade known as Highway Gears. Looks like a worth while upgrade with better fuel economy than with the standard 28 spline. But at the same time I want to swap out my 60/40 bench for a set of leather buckets. What would be more worth while is my question, I don't plan on getting rid of my Ranger so I want make it as keep able as possible and lets face it 20mpgs on freeway is a bit low for a V6.

so you want to change the gears? start with finding what you have and your tire size. then use this chart to decide on new gears.

Gear Ratio Guide For Larger Tires


you want to be middle of the green.

It is a 94 4.0 V6 4x4, and the 20 varies. One tank it's 20 next it could be 16 I only get 20 on road trips with AC or with out. So 20 is about right with my rig?
