Hi, I just joined in and need some advice...

HI guys, I just joined in. I own a 1992 Bronco, 2WD and 300 I-6, C-6, 3.08 gears all stock. I want to perform some mods to the truck as to get better power (acceleration), uphill driving and mileage. I already belong to other forums like FTE, fordsix, and fullsizebronco.com
-My options are: An engine swap (300 to 351W), an overdrive tranny with lower rear gears, or just building up the existing 300. Given that the three options would cost around the same, which of those (or other you may suggest), could give me the most bang for my buck?! thanks in advance...PS: I use my truck for everyday driving (mostly city although at high speeds sometimes) and do very little hauling or towing and no off-roading.

Hi, I just joined in and need some advice...

I'd do your gears. Try a set of 3.73s. If all your doing is city driving, you should be fine, the 3.08 is more of a highway gear.

Those that say it cant be done should say so quietly, so as not to disturb those who are doing it.
