Unless you are on the highway allot and plan to gear down to at least 3.73, if not 4.10, then I wouldn't mess with an OD (5 spd) trans. Without a regear, the M5OD will suck in 1'st with 3.08's and OD would be useless, and a zf will still be useless in OD.



"ileage depends on how healthy your engine is and your driving habits, but I'm getting 14 city 15.5 hyw with my setup in my sig w/ 3.55's. I would expect that you would see something close to that.

i'm on tha highway ALOT atleast 200 miles a weekend or more.i was considering 3.73 or 4.10 just for accelerationbut tha zf5 has such a low 1st i dont know if i'll need to re-gear??


"does your solid 44 have 3.08 gears in it? It's not going to work too well in 4x4 if front and rear don't match."

i put 4.56s in tha bronco so no.and it had 3.00:1 in it (ridiculous)and i'm buying another set of axles from a buddy for 250 bucks with tha 6inch lift still on em and i'm goin to swap it out with thoughshe beleives they have 3.55 butm i'm gone pull ema dn check em out befor i throw em in tha f150

ok i've been punchin numbers on this computer for about a hour and a half now and tha E40d is outa tha question for me just because tha gearing is way to high.

the zf5 speed and 3.55's is my nomineecause of this

1st gear at 11mph 2400 rpms

2nd gear at 23mph 2500rpms

3rd gear at 39 mph 2400rpms

4th gear at 62 mph 2400rpms

5th gear at 73 mph 2000rpms flat

and for tha back country roads , city roads , highways and interstate thats best numbers i can come up with.what do yall think?i beleive this will be my setup..any ubjections??
