    All of you who have swapped out your 700R4/208 for T400/205's...is the reduced reduction that noticeable. I'm talking about the lower first gear in the 700 and 2.7 reduction in the 208. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Next question... would you spend 500 US to have a lower fisrt and second gear in your 400?

    It is very noticable. I had a better crawl with my old 700, 208, and 3.73's than I do now with TH350, 205 and 5.13's. I guess thats the price for beef.

    i still have my 700r4, but i put a np205 behind it. frankly i dont really miss the low gear all THAT much. I very rarely even use 1st gear on my tranny... last wheelin trip i didnt use it even once. Of course, Im one of those wheelers that would rather crawl over an obstacle than hammer the skinny peddle and all that jazz. If I cant get over an obstacle via crawlin, I'll take a bypass. Hammering on the gas and trying to leap over obstacles and stuff is just dumb. thats just my opinion...
