Not picking on your math, but it should be 2.61 squared, not x2 for the doubler. So 2.46x2.61x2.61x5.13

Its all good! I wasn't sure how it was calculated, in fact i was using a formula that was online, but i still was putting the wrong info. so thank you for that; now i know.

@NickOille looking at your post for your broken ram this is what I did to mine. works great. Since I do drive mine on the road and the ram doesn't return to center 100% I wanted a quick disconnect. So I wouldn't be sawing the steering wheel back n forth all the time. you can see in one picture where the ram is disconnected it is attached to the Track Bar, I the other picture the hoses connect to one another and are secured to the cross member via a sway bar bracket. It works great.

That’s a nice set up.
So I dunno if it’s cause my ram is only 1”, but I have zero street-ability issues. Perfect return to center, and I never have out-run the stock pump. It has enough power and relives enough stress that I haven’t cracked my frame at the box again either

@ANGELO

How did/do you like those Interco trxus MT tires? I rarely see them and have considered them in the past. Now that I'm looking for 17s, those are again popping back in my head. Not sure they are quite aggressive enough though. May just go with Iroks again. With cutout flares, I cant go with a bland tire.

I liked them they rode well and performed decent offroad. They were just to skinny for me otherwise i would have kept them on it. I do also like my iroks. They are surprisingly smooth and quiet ob tge street. They are bead balanced. But those wide tire do make tge truck death wobble

@AbandonedBronco , on your pull to 75 MPH video, did you shift into 5th (OD) at 75? Just wondering b/c I would have thought the RPMs would be lower w/your gearing and tire size with the OD.

Very impressive and sounds great BTW!

I kept wishing I had! I figured the pull was over, so I shut the video off.
OD would have dropped it down to about 2200.

And thanks! Yeah, I love how it sounds.

Okay, that's more like what I was thinking it should be in OD, but that makes it even more impressive: 75 in 3rd with a lil ol' 6 cyl

75 in 4th... it's a 5 speed with granny gear.

The "little" 281 in my stang would do 105 in 3rd... of course it had 1hp for every 10 pounds of car. That'll scoot anything around quickly!

I was still in 3rd when I got to 75, and then shifted into 4th and cruised. I could've shifted to 5th, but hadn't yet. :)

But yeah, basically pulled to 45 in 2nd, and 75 in 3rd.

It's why I love the ZF5. Very nice drivable gears with both a granny gear and an overdrive. Woohoo!
