Dumb Question

Maybe a dumb question but if I re-gear for bigger tires will I need to re-gear both front and rear or is the rear good enough?

You will have to do both or your rear tires will be spinning faster than your fronts in 4 wheel drive.

Yup both, if you want to continue to have the use of your 4wd.

you can do just the rear.

just make sure you remove your front drive shaft, and even the front ring gear, and throw them away so you can never use 4wd again.

if you want 4wd, you gotta do both axles.....
