if you regear youll be able to handle 31s with a 4:10 ratio. if you go 4:56 you could run 33s. you can run 31s stock no lift.

i'll post pictures tomorrow, I had 1993 reg cab short bed with 32x11.5x15 BFG a/t on alum alcoa's.

I had a 3.73 gear it was fine in city but sucked on freeway pretty much 5th was just for flat cruising. i recommend 4.10 for 32's.

what id do is go to a junkyard and get a ford explorer 8.8 rear end with the 4.10 gears and swap the axle in. thats the cheapest. a rebuild kit for your axle would be around 300 bucks. plus theres the labor costs to put them in, and a new axle would be less than $200. good luck, make sure that it has 4.10s, and if youre lucky itll have limited slip

read the thread and read his sig. he has a 2.3 and he wants 32s, but the 4.10s will work for him.

right colin, great point, but since he has ttb setup, itll be an easy swap if he can find a front axle off a post 97 ranger or explorer
