anyone running 4:43's - R & P vs 4:14's
running 285/75/16 km2 (32.83") and may someday go to 255/85/16 (33.01"); probably will not go to 35" tires.
-r380 5 speed D-90; purchasing GBR gear sets, either 4:14's or 4:43's.
anyone running 4:43's...I would appreciate on & off-road impressions.
My estimate is that at 75 mph (5th) with 285's; 4:14's = 2523 rpm's while 4:43's = 2720 rpm's; (stock 265's with 3.54 = 2254 rpm); (not exactly sure of r380 gear ratios so rpm's could be slightly off)
Looking for slower off-road without getting to high in rev's on road...75mph highway speed to my favorite trails or Moab...leaning towards the 4:43's as I have heard that 4.75 are too low for on-road. (Bill GBR has already chimed in)
