Gear Ratio

Can any one tell me if a 4:10 gear ratio is lower geared then a 4:88 gear ratio? Does the gearing get lower with a higher ratio? like a 5:10? Im looking at putting a locker in i have 35" tires with 4:88 gears. When i look at the lockers they say "works for above this XX:XX ratio or below this XX:XX ratio. I know the Carriers are different for different ratios... Thanks

4.88 is lower...

lower the number, higher the gearing and vice versa....

Rubi's come with 4.10's...I'm going to 4.88's when I get re-geared for 35's on my 01 Sahara...i currently have 3.73's and its painful!

Treat each of the day's problems as your dog would...
If you can't eat it or screw it, piss on it and walk away!

If in doubt...HIT THE GAS!! It may not always be the right decision, but it will end the suspense!

The build so far....http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/p...dator-1342553/
