You know if you'd just slow down and crawl your tires wouldn't be so much of a problem & you wouldn't need more than 39".

so after going through a bunch of specs i had my choice of a nv4500 or a sm465. going with a later 465. little shorter and i like the gearing better.second will be my hill shooting gear and first gives me a nice crawl gear.will never use fifth gear in the 4500 so no need for the extra weight and length. so first gear is a 6.55 second is a 3.58.3rd is 1.57, 4th is 1.0. should be right on the money for what i want.
going to clock my 205 more and change to a 32 spline female gear so it will be all 32 spline stuff.tcase and tranny.will have a bigger clutch with the 465 and will be bolted directly to my motor instead of using the adapter i have now.
the whole idea is to have a good strong drivetrain this way.keep a 4.10 ring and pinion.
