Gearing for sand, mud and hill climbing.

What would be the best, cheapest gearing set up for my situation. I have a stock engine, 5.5 SPOA, 31"tires on 2.5 back spaced wheels,stock springs and axles. I mostly drive in sand, mud, hill climbing, and sometimes some crawling. Money is a real issue so keep this in mind with the suggestions. I was thinking of going with 5.12 r&p but have recently heard this is really low. I have a spare t-case if two t-cases is the way to go.
I thank you all in advance for your help.

Don't force it, just get a bigger hammer.

Agreed, you would have TONS of fun with just 4.16:1 t-case gears. Performance will be MORE than adequate.

If you dont want to bust the wallet, maybe try the volvo 900 transmission install? It should give you a great low range..

got zook?

I wouldn't do any lower than a 4.57 with those tires of yours. Most of our customers running 31" tires just get the 4.16 tcase gears ($399) and they do great. Great in sand, mud, or rocks. Much easier to install for the do it yourselfer too.
