You may want to checkout some gear ratio calculators. They will give you a good idea as to the final gear ratio according to tranny, tcase and axle ratio.

This one won't help you much - but gives you an idea what I'm talking about.

I take it you have done your rresearch on input shafts for the t18?
I do have to ask about the transfer case choice though? trade it for a dana 20 or 300. Save space and weight.

Im in the process of building my t18 and dana 20 to bolt up to my 4.0

My initial post was wrong. The tranny is a NP439. The 205 is bolted up to the 439. Im going to run it behind a small block 350. I have a lot of hills on the highway and im looking to make a hill climber for hunting and pulling my boat and back and forth to work.
