33's will be fine on the 7.5. Just don't abuse it.

What does that have to do with the 7.5 or 8.8 axle?

The size axle has nothing to do with losing power. Its what gear ratio he has in that axle.

where in hell did i say get disk brakes? would you re-read my post i SAID get a RANGER 8.8 those all come with DISH brakes... all you have to do is unbolt and rebolt. you *might* need the flange that goes to the axle from the driveshaft all you have to do is remove yours and put that one on the u-joint

Yeah the 4 cylinder with the autos they give them 4:10 gears because its an auto and well 4 cylinder and they put the 410's in them to give it a little better acceleration.

My 07 with 2.3 and 5 speed though has 373's but I know with autos and the 2.3 and the older 2.5s they came with 410's.
