If I'm not mistaken it is like a 3.50ish gearing. It does ok in the mud. Since I wheel mostly alone I try not to get into anything really deep in case I get stuck.

It would be awesome off road then with those 4.88s. I understand what ya mean about wheelin alone. I like to play with mine in the mud just to see what I can do in a 2wd but hardly do because I am always by myself.

Love these old Broncos. Looks great! Can't wait to see the "finished" product.

This felt a lot worse than it actually looked.

Had the wife shoot some video but the phone ran out of memory just as it was about to get good. You can see the right rear wheel pitch up off the ground right at the end. I really need to lock the axles.
