    I have a 98 2.7L 4x4 manual with stock gears 3.58.... I have 31" tires and it is really geared wrong. They really should be 4.10.

    I would love to put 4.10 or 4.30 but they are tough to come by.

    Does anyone have 4.56 gears with 31" or 32" Tires. Is this too low of a gear for driving on the highway? I would like to drive 80mph with decent gas mileage and decent power. I prefer not to have really high RPM. Although with 3.58 and 31" Tires I often run it in 4th gear with about 4000 RPM. So if it is less RPM than that at 80mph in 5th gear that would be great!

    My vehicle is a daily driver so highway performance is 1st priority and off road is second.

    I have read different websites and forums and everyone suggest something different.

    Really looking for someones opinion who has 31" Tires with 4.56 gears

    - I really appreciate it!

    That helps.... but I am really looking for real world answers instead of theory. Although it is pretty close to what my engine RPM with my gear ratio is now


    Thanks!!!

    I'm 5 lug with 456's and 32" tires pullin 70mph when the speedo says 80 if that helps. It is a bit buzzy on the freeway. In the slow speeds it is about 5mph off.
