Default Low Range Gears - FZJ-80

Today I ran Italian Creek and Reno Divide (near Crested Butte, Co.)with my 95 FZJ-80 with the new Low Range gears. I have a stock 4:10 diffs with 35s.



What a difference!!! Much smoother over very rocky areas but particularly nice was the use of L/R 2 or 1 going down hill in very rocky areas. No Brakes! Just smooth power and gear braking.



This was really worth the money. Terry

Good to hear. I want 4.88's first as they will do about the same and I need the extra on the HWY. But I'd love to add the lower gears to the tcase too.
