So im lifting my truck and I want to put 35 inch tires on it... I told my friend this and he keeps telling me that i wont be able to turn them...I know its a really stupid question but, what does he mean I wont be able to turn them.
My truck is a 2001 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0v6

I was reading somewere that putting 4.88 in it would give it more power with the 35's is that true?

Is your truck 4wd or 2wd? If you're 2wd and want 35s then regearing is "kind of" affordable, If you are 4wd regearing would be pretty dang expensive.

But otherwise, you can drive around on 35s and 3.0 engine. Your truck is already slow, you'll just be a bit slower but be a badass on 35s.

Then do it. It'll prolly be like..600$ for 4.88s in the rear and 35s vary in price + body lift is about 150$ but your truck will look sick afterwards.

hell you only lookin at a few hundred bucks for a good set of gears and its pretty easy to do gears too. Also if you dont have L/S diff or a locker I would get one or the other if you plan to wheel at all

he need an 8.8 to. he won't be able to get 4.88s for a 7.5 and if he can he will probably snap a axle shaft eventually from the tire/wheel stress.

yeah the gears them selves would coast around 200 average for motive gear brand from summit raceng, and the intallation kit that includs the shims, crush sleeve, bearing, and ect. will coast about 200 for summit, but the trick is finding the ration you want that will fit your truck

i have 35's on my truck. i turn them no problem. i also have the 4.0L, 8.8, and 4.10's. the only thing i noticed was coming off a light there is a loss of power but i put a custom built K&N intake and superchips and it helped a lot. im planning on regearing to 4.56's in feb.
