I rarely drive highway so ill probably go with the 4.10s. Is their a noticeable difference in the way my car will drive?

So, it's quicker acceleration and loss of mileage, or better mileage and slower acceleration. Most go with 3.73 and split the difference over stock gearing. I have the 3:31 and get 24.6 for highway driving, 22 to 24.0 with stop and go/city driving. I've never driven a 3.7 V6 with a higher gear, so I cannot say what the acceleration difference is over a 3:31. I do like the 3:31 though; snappy.

I was going to get 4.10s, but I was planning on a turbo, and since tubo works on a load, ima go with 3.55s
It depends on your goal.
Are you staying N/A or going FI, if so, what type?

With 3.73 ur mpg will go down like 3-4 mpg if you go 4.10 u lose like 5-6
Also he's in the old 4.0 engine. Same engine they use in the ranger. So it'll only be 5-7 but the needle will make you think 10-12

I don't think he's going that far hasan lol, 4.10s are old school gears to me. I'm getting 3.55-3.73 and leaving her N/A.

Never fear the gear!
Especially in an auto

Save the install cost and trade it in for a 2011+. That engine isn't going to perform very well regardless of what gears you're running, and 4.10 would be a HUGE highway MPG loss. I don't know what your 5th gear ratio is, but it's going to tach very high with 4.10s.

My 2.73 gears run just under 2k @85 mph. So maybe 3k or so with 4.10s
