3.0, 4.10's, 33's, 9" of lift got 21 MPG's on a road trip with bed FULL of luggage. 75 mph sits at about 2700 rpm's. City, I get 18 consistant AND I tow a 14' Blazer Bass boat and have no complaints what-so-ever. Tow-package for Rangers comes with (correct me if I'm wrong) a larger diameter driveshaft, 8.8 rear axle with 4.10's, and a tranny cooler up front.

No it wasn't the gear ratios that did it. My truck wasn't set up right for the 31x10.50x15's. Plus I hit a deer and broke the rack and pinion steering on it too. That's key to adding bigger tires though too. that's why I also don't go to that hell hole of a shop anymore. They're about to be put out of business too and have a Class action lawsuit on their hands as well(and no I aint suing them either). They just f***ed up a brand spanking new Dodge SRT10 pickup. the steering, the rear end, the trans and all of that now has to be replaced because of those idiots.

ford calibrates the revolution per mile IE tire size and also gear ratio in the PCM, altering the revolution per mile is going to decrease MPG and performance.

you "know it alls" are booring me.

this thread reminds me of a luke wilson movie i just watched.
