Well, never thought I would say it but "I Don't Need Low Gears" (The wife is happy to hear this) I was doing some calculations and I think the 3.55:1 gears that came with my D44's will be fine. With my T18A(6.32:1), Dana20(3.15:1 SOON) and the 3.55:1 axle gears, I will have a Crawl Ratio of about 70:1. And I will only spin at 2044.80RPM at 60MPH on the high-way. I think those axle gears are low enough, Don't you? /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif

I've gotten along with 31" tires, 6.32 and 3.54 for years, and with 2:1 in the D20. There have been a few times that I've wanted something lower but got along without it. I am going to put 3:1 gears in the case if I can keep my PTO, and that should take care of it.

The only times I've wanted something lower is in rough rock climbing, so I think it's a matter of what you like to do. But 70:1 crawl should be good for almost anything if your tires aren't too big. Don't overlook that factor.

I agree, I'm at ~70:1 and have yet to need lower. I say go with it as is and see how it works for you, you can always go down in the diffs later.

You mean you're not going to just slap in some 5.38's and blame the rock crawlers for misleading you?/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif
