Default Ranger 03 XLT 6th Gear

I need a 6 th gear - why ? you ask well @ 110mph and 4250 rpm it eats the fuel, crusing in europe is something I do a lot but it is getting a little expensive. So has anyone any knowledge on adding overdrive, changing the gearbox ?

Wow...

Ok, rear end gears for starters.
You can see if they make longer trans gears for your truck, and also look into a longer final drive.

Orrrrrrrrr
