just my tj on an 18' dovetail. We'll see how it does, I'm not expecting much. Truck is more of a toy for now.

Yeah, truck needs at least 4.88's to get close to stock ratio. 5.13's would be ideal for the extra rotating mass.

no, it was a truck I had worked on in the past and I was trying to help the guy sell it. Just turned out he liked my cherokee and we worked out a trade.

That might not be to bad of a setup to go with. One of my vedors at work has a Ext Cab Chevy early '90's. Its got a 6" lift w/36" Radial swampers, and 4:10 gears. He tows his 1ton Blazer on 44's on a 18' trailer. It doesnt do bad. Nothing like a new diesel would do, but it gets the job done.
