    Just an update. Anyone who used my old gear ratio calculator, it's been updated and moved.

    The old pages are gone:

    http://www.dfw-tx4wd.org/gears.html
    http://www.dfw-tx4wd.org/Tech-Dept/Tech-Dept/gears.html

    The admin decided not to leave a forwarding page.

    The new page is:

    http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

    I added a bunch more transmissions and t-cases, including the new STaK 3 speeds. I also added a way to put in your own numbers if you want. I put in a bigger set of gear ratios and more tire sizes as well as the capability to change the RPMs and speeds it uses to calculate with.

    If you find anything that's wrong, please give me a shout so I can fix it. My email address is on the page. Otherwise, enjoy. And spread the new address around to anyone who has the old address and can't find it.

    So how do you like the upgrades? I've been meaning to do them for quite a while now.

    Super cool. I did not get a chance to see the first page, but by far the best gear ratio calculator I have seen. I really like the comparison feature. All of the choices such as inches or metric are really cool tooo. In no way does it need improvement but, I would like to see a "calculate" button that floats or is in more places so you can make changes to things like "Road RPM" and not have to find the change button then go back down and look at your results. Awesome, awesome, awesome!

    I need overdrive for my burb and I am currently trying to decide if I should go with a built 700R4 or a NV4500. And 33's vs 35's.

    That's a pretty good idea. I'll see about adding a few calculate buttons.

    Man, that is awsome. I have always loved your calc from the first time I found it. By far the most usable one out there. I cannot say enough good things about the time you put into this. Thank you for doing it.

    Can you make the tranny/t-case gears fill in before you hit calc?

    Thanx again :bow:

    I might be able to make the fields fill in. I need to do some more research because I don't know enough about HTML forms.

    yeah the upgrades are very nice. i had a friend quizzin me to death on how he'd rev with different gears in his tacoma at all these different speeds and your table made it possible for me to give him real answers fast.

    thanks again
