    what would be a good ratio to go with?

    i'm thinking somewhere in the 5.13 -- 5.38 -- 5.86 range.

    ive got a bored 350(probably will go with a 454 down the road), sm465, 205.

    With 24" lift and 44 or 46 I can't see myself doin much more than 55mph.


    How difficult is it to install gears and locker?
    Just need the right book and right tools like everything else I bet!

    I would say 5.13 as the strength is comprimised any lower. And with 44"ers and a BBC in the furure 5.13's will work great.
