replace my T-5 with a T-176?
So, during my build i'll have the opportunity to replace my T-5 with a T-176. Should i do this? Should i also replace my AMC 20 and Dana 30 axles with the 2:72 over the 3:31? I'll be mostly street around town and short trips with the occasional soft trail. I'll most likely be running a 2 1/2 to 3" lift with 33s. The t-case is a Dana 300 also and the motor is the 258.
run the T176 with the 33's and 3.31 gearing. It'll be tall enough to drive on the highway without OD but reasonable for trails. you DONT want to run 2.73 gears EVER with tires that large.
