OK guys, I finally have question. According to the tag on my rear axle, it has 3.08 gears and is an 8.8. Are these gears compatible with 33 inch tires?
Thanks.

Look at the second sticky topic in the 1980-'96 Bronco forum. It will be everything you want to know and then some. Do it when you'll have time to read through it all. Personally I do not know if 3.08s can do it for 33s.

EDIT: Whoops, I meant the GEARs sticky in the tech writeup. But the one above will probably have some good info for you also.

Nope.
If you put those tires on with those gears your engine will blow up the next time you try to start it.

I bought my bronco and it came with 3.07 with 32" tires. I coudn't turn the tires over on gravel. So weak. I think it helped out my tranny to die. 4.11 now should be alot better.
