Depends, is it a trail vehicle only or is it a daily driver? For trail only, definitly dual t-case. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Doble cases or one case with lower gears will not have anaffect in 2WD,I have dual cases and drive my truck on a daly basis . With dual cases you'll have the option of stock low and doble low,if you go with the lower gears in a single case,you'll be stuck in doble low all the time.

3.90s and 35s? With a 22R? I think I might go for the 4.88's first. Current setup seems a might sluggish...

Ok don't laugh....ok go ahead, I'm going to run my 39.5x15 TSL's with 4.10's and a AA dual I got from AllPro,4.1 gears later on <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> if I can use low range on the Hwy, I will <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> I ran 35's and 4.10's for years, 5.71's and 31-33-35-36-38.5, and the only diff is how you take off in about 1st and a 1/2 gear and you shift through the gears slower, and 4th is about like 5th, do the math and see the ratio difference, if you don't drive alot of miles everyday, lower diff gears are not that big a deal. I only run 3-6K a year.

I second this. On a trail only rig the dual cases will help out a ton there. The different r&p will only modify the final ratio but since you don't highway it, you really don't need to redo the r&p. The dual cases will get you where you need to go regardless of the r&p.

So basically the dual cases is for the trail and the r&p is for the highway.
