Any body know what ratio 14:43 is? What is the formula for figuring gears?
Keep it simple!
43 divided by 14 = 3.07. Sorry, you have the same "economy" gears as I do.

These are just the gears in the spare axles I picked up. I am thinking about going with 4.11's. Running 35's turbo 350 w/208 t-case. I am not sure if 4.56's would be to steep for the highway. Would anybody have either of these setups? The blazer is mainly just a rig, but I drive to all the trails. Might drive to Colorado from Oklahoma. Any sugestions? Oh yea, I might be going with sm456 tranny w/205 t-case.
Keep it simple!
I am installing 4.56s tonight for a daily driver/weekend warrior. I have a 305 with 700/208 and 10-bolts capped with 35 BFG MTs. The OD in the 700 should work very nicely with the 4.56s. If you were running a non-OD tranny, then they might be a little steep.
