Re: 31s on stock 2010 4x4?

anyways don't want to argue but that tire change will throw off gas mileage calculation because of 7% change in tire circumference

Re: 31s on stock 2010 4x4?

31 inch was not a stock tire on a ford ranger but if you are not geared for it you will notice a difference.the two largest tire sizes were 235/75/15 and 255/55/16. No 31😆

Re: Speedo 10mph off help

Two thoughts. First I thought the 2001 ford ranger had a 2.3 liter not 2.5 as was replaced by smaller motor. Need to swap in a known good speedometer to check.

Re: 98 XLT tire question - yes, I read the sticky/chart

had a 2002 ranger with 225/70/15 tires and ran perfectly with that size. 2.3 liter motor. do not believe you can run 31s without lifting.
235/75/15 should be fine. lots of clearance for that size.

Re: Help with 04 Ranger 4.0L thermostat

because the thermostat cover is plastic you have to be careful to align it properly. it will break otherwise. do not overtighten it. I changed my thermostat last year.

Re: Engine Jerking while accelerating

your problem sounds like a problem i had after a spark plug set change. in my case was a bad plug. got a different plug set and problem fixed but you never mentioned changing the spark plug wires....
