Lower gearing before the transfer case is all well and good -- but putting something lower in the diff has benefits all the way down the line.
I wonder does anyone make lower low range sets for the Borg-Warner t-cases most of us have?
I am not really thinking about doing this, I am just curous about it. I guess its the wanna-be engineer in me that wants to know how things work and where i can get them. I have a habit of finding out as much as I can about stuff like this just for fun.
I don't really have any gearing problems with my truck as of now. i have said many times I love how it drives. I can see a problem in the future post buying a camper, but I already know that answer to that is like you said to re-gear.
