There is a point of diminishing returns for most things and i am wondering how low is low enough in respect to final low ratio?

Do you guys with the doublers or really low gears get a proportional amount of useable value for your investment?

ps: multiple choice

Ahh yes the Law of diminishing returns
also know as the point of redundancy I`ve wondered the same as well

depends how you are getting there.
a doubler of some kind so you do not lose the 70:1 of single reduction I would say a 140:1 could do it but I havent been there so ??

The odd thing here 'cuda is that you are asking "champange" level questions of a mostly "beer" crowd!![f]

Would my 4.0HO count as a large displacement engine or small displacement...


For my CJ5 304V8, T176, D300, 33s I would prefer much lower gears with the standard tranny..

On my XJ 4.0HOI6 AW4 NP231, I think 50:1 (double what I have now) would be great for me as I don't see myself as a rockcrawler..

I've got about 110:1

for around here that is enough for most stuff, but on trails with lots of traction lower would be nicer. 150:1 would be ideal I think. but that options isn't available to me, so I'll be doubling mine with 4.7 t-case gears in the 2nd case which should put me at about 220:1 with options of about 100:1 and 50:1 as well

with the double trannies i found out how low was too low the 247:1 was usless and i think on the 4clder 150 to 200 WOULD BE IDEAL

I currently have approx 70:1 and I find that it is not low enough some of the time.
I think somewhere from 120/150:1 would be ideal.

Got about 110-1 when in double low. I would like to go slower for some tecknical stuff cause 110-1 seems fast when you think you might roll.

I have 173:1, and like it a lot. Thats with a revy inline 6.

I think I'm at 70:1 now, soon to put the 4 to 1 in
