    Just ran some numbers for gears with my tranny t-case and was surprised

    700+241+5.13s=42.7 final drive
    and 2283 rpms at 70 mph with a 37" tire

    700+241+4.88s=40.62 final drive
    and 2171 rpms at 70 mph with a 37" tire

    Not to much of a difference so 5.13s will get put in, the comparision to a doubler if you useing 4.56 gears is pretty close

    400+doubler+4.56=45.24 final drive
    and 2899 rpms at 70 mph with a 37" tire
