Gearing

I have a 2005 Excursion 6.0 with a 7 inch SuperLift and 37x13.5x22 tires. The stock gearing is 3.73 what gearing should I change too. The tires are Toyo Oper Country they mesure 36 inches. Thank You!!!

4.56 would be your best bet.

For 37s the correct gearing would be 4.88s, but that'll kill your mpg, if you're worried about that. You could get away w/ 4.56s but thats the highest I'd stop at, 4.10s you'll really be sacrificing power.

4.30 for sure unless you tow very often, then 4.56's.

How heavy is the toy hauler?

Actually, it's yours... you will probably upsize in the future anyway, 4.30's will pull most anything within the range an excursion can legally, but the 4.56's will do it a bit easier.

Either 4.30's or 4.56's. 4.10's will be too high and 4.88's will be too low. I'm running 4.56's in my truck but am running 39.5's and dont feel like I have enough low end. If I had the truck I would put 4.56's with 36's.
