I am contemplating buying another Sport-Trac. It is an '04, VIN 1FMDU77K34VAxxxxx. The one I have now has a 4.10 ratio and doesn't get the mileage that I would like. Can you get the axle ratio from the VIN I posted? I would rather not buy another one with the low gears.
It's about 3 hrs. from me and I haven't gone and looked at it yet. I'm not terribly worried about the mileage of the one I have now and have done nothing in an attempt to improve the it. My daughter just totaled her car and I was contemplating letting her have it and buy a newer one for my wife. I was hoping to get one with the OD transmission and higher axle ratio and hopefully higher MPG.
I double checked the VIN and noticed that I had it wrong. The correct one is 1FMDU77K34UA28844.
