Different gears?

I'm looking into getting a higher gear. What do you all think. Would it help fuel economy any? Also, just wondering if they made it like the good days when you could just unbolt it and it all comes out on the Fords.

You need to add more information. Why do you want to change gears and to what ratio? What tire size are you or do you plan on running? Is your ddriving mostly highway or mostly around town? There are many considerations.

Not sure about the old days but if you take enough bolts out everything comes out eventually.

I was thinking that switching to higher gear would give better fuel economy. Not sure exactly, what ever is highest available to me. Stock tire size. Usually highway, speed around 50-65. If i go into town its maybe for 10-15 minutes driving time.
