hey thanks for the info is it a bad idea to keep the gears stock with 35 inch tires?Bronco Rob said:Is the bronco used for strictly offroad? If it's strictly offroad i would say yea, 4.56's would be good, but if you do any highway driving, your motor is going to be screaming and you can say goodbye to your gas mileage.
If your going to use it for offroading and street use, i would suggest you go with 4.11`'s, this will ease your motor on the highway, and keep you with somewhat decent gas mileage.
When changing gears, you ALWAYS change front and rear, or you will never be able to use your 4x4 again. The drivetrain will bind from the different gearing, if you go with 4.11's you need to go both axles.
There is a sticky on this, i suggest you read that, and try a search for gearing, there is a lot of information in this subject already.
Well, when i do my lift i am going to be running 35's on the stock 3.55's. I am not planning on beating anything off the line, and when i do wheel it, it's not even really gonna be wheeling compared to what some of these guys do.bronco freak said:hey thanks for the info is it a bad idea to keep the gears stock with 35 inch tires?
the OP posted this 4 years ago....The wear on the converter is always what's worried me the most. To the OP, just check into other people's feedback when they're running E40D's and gears. I'd think that if you're planning to stick with 35's and not go any bigger, 4.11 and 4.56 would both be fine and just depend on where you prefer to sit at with RPM's on the highway. If ya ever want to go bigger than 35's, choice is a bit more clear cut.
:thumbupYa I know. I just want to add questions and learn more about some of the topics already discussed without starting new topics of the same old thing...:beer
