A different ratio calculator for 4x4's

This is kind of nice because you can simply specify your transmission and transfer case models instead of inputting all the numbers. Once you do that and select your rear gear ratio you hit calculate and get many different tables.

Some are speed for 4 high, some for 4 low, and the crawl distance per minute at different RPM's is specified.

Both 5R44E and 5R55E users (3.0 vs. 4.0) can use the "5R55E" trans setting since the ratios are the same.

Most of you have a BW 1354 transfer case, which is also listed.

Perhaps a repost but I don't remember it so here it is:

Well this comparission calculator has definetly helped me know that 4.56's or stay with my 3.73's. I don't want to spend the effort in an axle swap to 4.10's. I will have wished I went with 4.56's in the end.

Although I will prolly have to wait longer for 4.56's. The research I have been doing has not been encouraging. I know it is a precise job. I don't have the tools for setting the precision. I also don't have the money to pay someone else for it.

Thanks John. This has really gotten me depressed.

Ha ha! Boy, that WAS a delayed reaction. Well, it didn't need comments -- I just wanted to share it since I stumbled across it.

Glad it was useful -- whoever did it certainly made a nice tool online.
