if anyone ever has this question again, do this:

install gears, get in truck, start truck, put in 4wd, put in drive (or reverse depending upon orientation), slam on the gas.

come back with the results...

the front and rear axler ratio must be within .02-.05 of each other (i dont know how to put it technically...

for example, dana 44s can use a 4.09 while a ford 8.8 can use a 4.10 or 9" ford with a 4.11...

if not the torque multipplication on a hard surface will cause binding in the t-case and BOOM...same rule applies to running mis-match sized (height) tires front and rear like 35s in the rear and 33s in the front. if on soft ground like sand or mud u may be able to get away with it for a short time but as soon as there is some binding in the transfer case.

BUT, and its a very big BUT, if u run 3:54s in front (as said dana 44) and 4:10s in the rear (as said ford 8.8) with a 31" tire up front and 35" tire in the rear u will be "OK"...i dont recommend it but u can get away with it...
