I have a 98 Ranger, with a superlift and 31"s... I'm going with a 3" body lift, and 35"s.... What gears should i run? It will basically be an on road truck, and i want some torque and good power? What MPGs?

I would run 4.56 or 4.88. 4.10 would be the smallest (not sure if thats right) I would go.

Those gears would give you what you are after.

you'll probably be happiest with 4.88 or 4.56. It just depends on the type of wheelin you do ie; rocks or mud and how much freeway mileage you drive. I've got a 4.0 with an AT and 5.13s turning 35's but I run the rubicon and trails like that so I wanted better gears for crawling. Not terrible on the freeway but wouldn't be good if I drove a lot of freeway miles.
