    I was looking through some 4x4 magazines and noticed something. I saw a truck that had 39s and only had 4:11 gears. Shouldn t it have 4:88 or lower, at least!!??
    It wasnt some trailer queen either.

    Maybe the guy just drives it in low-range 24/7...on the trail I mean. If he drives it on pavement, the acceleration has got to suck. Although, I've seen retards in mags with 3.08 gears and 40's before.
