is it necessary to have reduction ring and pinion by having 32's or 33's on tracker?
what is the maximum tire size can be used on 6' calmini kit with 2' boondox spacer?:confused:

A couple of friends of mine had the 6" lift on their Kicks and any more than a 31 will need fender trimming.
Do you have an auto or manual tranny, if you have auto you can put in gears from a manual and be ok. Gears are not mandatory but they sure help give you back your power and driveability.

tuner has a 3+3.5 body lift, calmini suspension.. he fits 33's no prob. they are ok on road with 33's but need more off road.

You cannot reduce a kick/tracker much further in the diffs. maybe a .2, not worth the time and hassle. A t-case gearset for suzukis usually has a 11%-14% recduction that can give you some of the power back.

thanks,I gone add the 2" spacer from boonbox so it will give me more clearance and I dont have problem with trimming, I am more concern about the power I can get with 33' for offroading.I know calmini has pinion and ring reduction to 5.83:1 and T-case reduction to 4.24:1, but they both are very pricey, I was trying to avoid buying them

Dont do the 5.83's. By the time you get them in and set up you will be into them for a small fortune. And the difference is not that significant. Just do the t-case gears and get a intake and exhaust.

Thanks Eieio, do you know where can I find cheap t-case gears? and what ratio do you recommend?

Trail Tough has the best price on t-case gears. I think they are running about $650.
There is only one ratio available for the Track/Kick and that is 4.24 to 1. I put a set in mine a couple months back and it made all the difference in the world offroad

either homebrew duals or the tt deal is SO cheap right now it's hard not to do it.

Dual transfer cases from OTT is very nice, it gives you great gear selectability. The TrailTough 4.24 gearset is all you need for wheeling here in BC. If you plan on doing distance runs (Moab, Rubi, etc) plan on having a bit deeper gearing. The key to BC wheeling is momentum and a whole bunch of that right footer.
