4:10 gears on a 2wd?

I just got 33's put on and was thinking of swaping my gears. Is it worth it?

what is your engine size? what does your Safety Certification Tag say (it is inside the drivers door) under the AXL lable?

on the tag inside the drivers door there is a spot that is labled "AXL"....directly under it will be either 2 numbers or a number & a letter......

then look here to find what gear ratio you have.....
https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=37149

and we need to know what size STOCK tires your truck had....



BTW: 4.10 gears is not a "New Idea".....it has been done before....

sweet so my tag says R7 under AXLE... so that means i have "Limited Slip 8.8 w/ 4.10 ratio "

this a good thing? bad thing? not to highjack this guys thread, just instead of starting my own. I normally see ppl switching their gears to this. Reasons?

people switch to a 4.10 or lower gear because they add larger tires and have to compensate somehow for the lost umph of the truck....

You could swap a rear axle of a ranger or explorer for the same cost as the gears alone. Definately a junkyard would be your friend.

Also, unless you're into offroading or having fun spinning out while driving, you don't really need a limited slip. To be honest a lack of limited slip is often easier to drive in bad conditiions.

I had 3.55s in my rear end stock with limited slip, now Im on 4.10s but I did it for more performance rather then putting on larger tires.

new stock XL 4cyl reg cabs have 4.10s already.

usually it's cheaper to find a junkyeard axle that already has 4.10s...even an 8.8 with 4.10s can be had for under $200. alot cheaper than having gears swaped out and set up.

My 3.0 4x2 came with 4.10's as an option. It's worth it to regear to get your power back, IMO. I have 4.56 gears now with my 35's.

I'm making it into a 4x4 now, but I already did the front axle with 4.56 gears as well. It works well on this truck with 35's.
