35 with stock gears

Just wondering if 35 with stock gearing is a bad idea. I have 33 now, a rebuild tranny with stock gear will it mess everything up? please help

I had 31's with 3.73 gears and that killed me, I don't know how you guys with 35's and 4.10's can stand that.

WOW That must have sucked bad.


As for 35's and 3.73's. Think how bad the 33's are compared to the pep you had with stock tires. With 35's it will suck. I hate 33's and 3.73 that is why I am installing 4.56's. I'll let you know how I like them tomorrow(the axle is almost ready to go in the truck).

Funny guy with the 350. Too bad we all can't drive a Chevy but hey somebody has to be able to pick up the Chevy guys when their trucks fall apart.

my 5th gear is never used. unless im traveling down hill. it just bogs down my 3.0 I dont think I could lay rubber down ever if I dumped my clutch, actually it can't just stalls out the engine. LOL. but yeah 4.56s should solve that problem

Didn't know 3.36 was an option in a Ranger.

But I know that sucks big time. The Bronco II I had, had 30" with 3.45 and that sucked.

I have 35s and 4.10s and my truck is still nice and fast and people comment on it pushing them back in their seats.

Not as fast as stock, but i could probably still beat on a 3.0 like a redheaded stepchild.
