Thanks for the info be sure to take all into consideration. The guy I'm getting it from said I will be able to take my drive shafts to a machinist near buy that will take the u-joints off the drive shafts from the M-1008 and attach them to my drive shafts and that will work do you know anything about that? The locker is a Detroit and the axle gear ratio is 4.56:1 (do not actually know that for sure found that out by search online I believe that is stock). At the same time, I am looking to put 35" tires, a V8, and a SM465 Trans. Have not found the Trans. yet but I think I may have one, depends on the price and condition. The gearing in the Trans. is 6.55, 3.58, 1.57, and 1.0. I will use my same T-case the NP 231, which is 2.72:1 in low range and 1:1 in high.
How does that sound?
I put all of this into http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/gearing.htm
I got 81 for the Crawl Ratio and 2845 for the Engine RPM's at 65 MPH
So as long as it is not ridiculously wide it will be relatively simple?
On the condition, he said they still work well with no problems and no leaks.
