Get one, or get a Scangauge that reads it. That way you'll atleast be able to see what you are running and be able to drive different to keep it cooler. I thought my truck wasn't bad driving fast on the highway, but now that I've got the gauge I know it gets too hot for my liking doing 85 and I know that if I slow down to 70-75 it stays cooler. If I didn't have the gauge I'd still be doing 85 getting the trans really hot.

The fact that it's a lifted Ford doesn't scare me away.

I think it's because it's a stepside. It just looks odd to me.

The onyl problem with 37's, you will have no tuck-in ability off-road because you will keep ripping your under-fender area, front valance - etc.. etc..... thats why most peopel hodl off on 37's till they at least do a custom front end/SAS on the front and rear - one flex on a bad bump and your going to start chewing through paint and/or tire rubber :-(



On the other side though;

That thing looks HUGE.. I would hate to drive my own truck next to it.. would make me look puny :-D Looking great though, them 37's start getting expensive! Hope you have a plan for when you decide to swap out tires 35-40k down the road :-D

no im not worried about the tuck ability, i flexed it out without the body lift and didnt run into any problems, the only place i get some rubbing is on the driver side wheel well when the wheels are turned to the left, if i was worried about petty things like paint and scratches the truck would still look stock......

37's are stupid expensive ill never buy these again unless i find a great deal cause there is no way im dishing out 300 a tire.......

most people hold off on 37s cause they will DESTROY a stock ranger drive line..

you can get into the 6's with the 8.8, I'm pretty sure as low as you can go with the D35 in a ranger is 4.88

When I swapped out gears the guy told me that Nitro gears made a 5.13 for both.
