We proly all have no idea how TALL the proposed tractor tires are.

Are you going to rock climb or speed through mud bogs?

Most likely though, the higher (numeric) ratio is the best choice, unless it spends most of the time as a daily driver.

Im thinking hes going to be in mud with those kinda tires, they wouldnt last a day rock crawling. With that side i would only be guessing at ratios. maybe a 5.38 in the diffs and stock or 4 to 1 t-case gears.
