In your case:
A = current

Your tires currently(215/70R14) measures 25.9" tall. In my opinion, I think it's just about right for a 3.73 rear. But, in your case and for what you want, I'd just bump the tire size up when you need tires. Bump rim size up too to a 15" rim. Craigslist FTW! Stock rims for cheap and sometimes with tires. I'd shoot for the stock newer base model Ranger size of 225/70R15(27.4" tall). I think that'll change your ratio just enough to be perfect for your tastes. Plus, it's like a free 'upgrade' when you need tires! And don't gotta deal with finding the right axle and bolting it in or dealing with actually having someone change the gears.
what will the 15" rim do?
