Hi,
I purchased an all stock 88'samurai with rebuilt motor which runs well. It came with 26"tires and i raised it up with "Old Man Emu under axle Springs about 3" and put on an aggressive lug 29" tires now.... I use this for normal off road stuff but also use it as my daily ride...... Well before with the smaller tires i was able to use it on the Interstate and hold 65 mph on a normal incline, now with the larger tires i can't keep it in 5th gear too long before i have to downshift. Is there a Transfer Case gearing that would let me keep this in 5th gear at say 65mph?
Thanks for any insight as i know there are many transfer case gearings.
Joe

4.16:1 Gears
Low Range Reduction 84%
High Range Reduction 12%
Suggested Tire Size 29”-30”

This has been a standard for many years. Go much lower and you will be running the engine RPM's up too high on the highway.
You can get the kit from Low Range Offroad (among others) for about $415.

Bill,
That is exactly the answer i was looking for and i like the gearing ratios of low and high range.
this is a great site.
Thanks,
Joe
