I've been looking but have come up sort, I looking to regear my 8.8/dana 30. Is there a company that does this as a combo or do i need to piece it together?

depends on what your doing with the ranger. i plan on driving mine on the street and i have a manual trans 4.0 so im going with 4.10s and it should be plenty of gear for crawling too.

If you plan on running anything over 31's, I'd stick with the 4.56's...

FWIW, my ranger has 33's with 4.56's, 4.0/MT, and I get 19mpg on the highway all day long at 68-70mph

I got motive gear 4.88's. I running 33''s for now but will be going to 35''s-36''s. my xj does not see the road. so 4.88's should be plenty of gear for crawling, not to mention the engine work that's going to be done.
