    Crawl ratio?

    Looks like it should be the final crawl ratio for a truck with a SM 465 a 203/205 doubler and 4.56 gears.

    6.54 * 2.01 * 1.96 * 4.56 = 117.5

    Finaly started working on it today. I unbolted the 205 for manoverabilty and to grind the rail :grind: . I now have front H + L and rear H + L :D .

    Took measerments today. The rear yoke will be about the same place but the D shaft is about 4" longer than mine. I am going to turn my rear springs around to push the axle back 4" :eek1: and loose some rear overhang as well ( really sad about that :haha: :haha: )

    sorry no pics, nothing worth taking pics of :burb:
