Re: Gear ratio program.How do you figure final ratio?
If there is such a thing as too low I dont know how low it would be. I can always shift out of either one of the T cases or up a gera to get where I need.
BUT, I got to drive a wrangler with 210:1 gear ratio, up a rock face that I always fight to get up, its ability to keep slowly grabbing its way forward without ever breaking away was wild. Very impressive to say the least. i deffinitely wouldnt pre judge super low gear ratios with out dated misconceptions until you give it a try, it is awsome. A freind in the club Ive joined in Ridgecrest has climbed 6 of the 7 waterfalls heading up Surprise canyon using his 200:1 Wrangler, previousely only 4 were considered climbable. If you have ever watched the well prepped Marlin set ups in Toyotas, in action, you really cant argue with their climbing prowess either.
But the versatility is really what I like about stacked T cases, rather than going to one low 4.3 t case and being stuck with that I can have the ability to use a 3.7, 2.5, or a combo of both, all with gear driven Iron reliability. Really dont see any down side.
There is no "TRY", Just "DO" or "DONT DO"
