Re: rings vs. tcase...Your input please
I say Go for the diff gears. If your not looking for a super low range rockcrawling POS, don't bother with the wad of cash you would be chucking out the window.
Different gears in the rear and front save more parts from being broken than a t-case.
Just think. we all know how gear reduction works, if you put in a t-case with deep gears when those puppies start turning you driveshafts, ujoints, pinion, ring, axles and hubs there taking a heavy load. A deeper ring will spare you the stress on the ujoints, driveshafts, pinion and ring gear.
Plus the deeper rings will compensate for the larger tires.
Just remember don't go with too deep of a ring, or else you will have stupidly high highway rpm's just to keep up with traffic.
Remember it all depends on how much you wanna pay.
