my zuk, currently has a crawl ratio of 125 to 1
3.55 gears =125
4.10 = 141
4.56=156
4.88=167
5.13=176

i need to regear since im sticking that 35 spline D60 in the back

For 35's 4.56 will restore power losses, and bring your gas mileage back up to par, or at least close.

i voted 4.88. you guys gotta remember that the lower the gears go the less strong they are. i think 4.88s are a good medium for strength and ratio. you can always slap on another t-case

Yeah, hence the 100-something to 1 ratio he already has:rockon

Id say go for the 4.88s, 5.13 seems a bit extreme. I mean, 167:1?!! Thats crazy man! :thumbup

how long is that rear drive shaft?
about 18" with the centered d44.
the D60 with the correct offset will make it about 16" if i leave it as is, but im gonna add 2-3 inches to the rear wheelbase, that i already added 6" to before.
