...like to get at least 65 on the highway so I'm not a traffic hazard.
...tire is 33 but only 10.50 wide, so maybe I should be looking at 3.55
I like the ratio you picked out first the best, but yeah, try out the 3.55 for
Got 3.55 with ~31.5" tires on the Bronco and 3.50 with the same diameter
tires on the pickup ('75 F150 360FE+T18) and that 3.50 gearing is real good
everywhere except the freeway where it seems a little low geared but ok...
it'll pick 'em up and put 'em down when I need it to. 65mph is good with the
Bronco or pickup in 4th. That's why I say I think you'd be happy with 3.73.
What's your elevation there now? You're used to sea level performance and
you can kiss that goodbye. ;) I live at ~3600' and don't have to go far in
any direction to hit 2500' to 5000'.
There's a formula for how much horsepower you lose per foot of elevation.
...it ain't pretty! ;)
