Ben, to even NEED that sort of thing, you really would have to be doing serious rock crawling type of offroading. And if you're doing that, you'd probably want to figure out better underbody protection as well.

What have you done or regularly do where the time and expense of a doubler would help you?
I think its just the "oh that would be cool" feeling I like, I know I have no need for one, and I seriously doubt I would ever put one in my truck i am just curious about it.

Although not a trivial expense to regear, it's a lot cheaper than what he's thinking of and it will save a lot of stress on his u-joints, driveshafts, and transfer case.

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.

New tire size/old tire size = new gearing/old gearing

35"/30" = x/4.11 ?

x=4.79

So I'd go with 4.88's

Hell maybe even 5.13?'s not like this is your primary vehicle.

lol! I need your transmission too, lol. You can keep the front end stuff.

Are you putting in a different transfer case??? What do you plan to use? Sorry if you talked about this already somewhere but I didn't see it if so.

4.88 is the biggest gear I can put in the front thanks to the POS D35/28 hybrid front diff.

John I'll sell you everything! 4.0 transmission and engine, 4x4 and a superlift!

J/K some recent news with the truck might mean my parents will want to fix her as she is. My uncle got her running and driving this weekend!

Sorry, enough of my hijacking.
