FTE Small - Re: tires for Ranger 4x4

Subject: Re: FTE Small - hyperchip results..96 explorer

I own a 1996 ford explorer xlt with the 5.0 v8 and all wheel drive..I
recently purchased a hyperchip module and took out my computer and installed
it...It was a very easy installation and it's suppost to increase horsepower
by 18 to 20 at the rear wheel...The only problem i had was under full throttle
i was experiencing severe pinging and after talking to a technical expert they
told me i needed a 160* degree thermostat...I installed this thermostat and it
worked, now the truck runs a lot cooler but the horsepower difference is there
and it also tows my boat with a lot more punch.......This all ran me about $
250.00 not to bad for a rough 20 hp and 40lbs of torque......Although the
company says they have written documents that say none of these modification
will void any warranties i feel the truck was designed to run at 195 and might
have some downfalls to this new temp any suggestions or info on this subject
would be appreciated......thanks ding

Subject: FTE Small - Re: tires for Ranger 4x4

I have a 90 Ranger XLT, 2.9, 4x4 ext cab that has 215/75-15 tires with
the stock aluminium wheels. A friend has 31 x 10.50 on a 94 Ranger that
has a body and suspension lift. He's putting 33s on his truck and I'm
thinking of putting his 31s tires and wheels on my 90 Ranger. I tried
his 31s on my ranger this weekend and like the look. Took it for a drive
and noticed no rubs. Is there any thing else I need to be concerned
about? The tire extend out past the fender. Legally, I'll need to
extend the fenders. Any suggestions, on what products to use? I'm sure
others have done this, what is your experience?
