go for it...I think most the guys agree on here that the 4.0's have quite the power. And then chip it...and you will be set.

Don't forget they don't sell your engine anymore. You have more low end torque than the new Rangers do. I turn 33"s with 4.10 gears with the OHC 4.0L and it is nothing to get excited about.

It could be worse, but the Ranger isn't my first choice outta the stable if going fast is on my mind.
