Carrier question

This probably is a dumb question big its tripping me up. Im building a rock crawler YJ and am in the process of putting the tons under it. So to go to 5.38s I need different carriers. So in the 14 bolt they have spools that say "4.10 and higher" does that mean higher number/lower gear, or higher gear/lower number? Thanks in advance.

. It has to do with the configurations of the gears and carriers. So 4.10 and higher a.k.a. 4.10 and up generally means 4.56 or whatever.

What crawl ratio are you shooting for, and what's the rest of the driveline consist of (engine, tranny, transfer case and tire size)?

5.38's could be a poor choice depending on the rest of the driveline, tire size and crawl ratio you aim to achieve.

Yes, "higher" means numerically higher and ratio lower.

High ratio carriers have the ring gear flange positioned closer to the pinion since the diameter of the pinion will be smaller. Low ratio carriers are just the opposite with the the ring gear flange positioned further away since the pinion diameter is larger.

Just information that I thought you might be interested in. It explains the differences between carriers. Isn't this a technical forum? Sorry if you feel insulted.

There's a lot to be learned on these forums. I know I've learned a lot. You just need to have an open mind. Another thing is that even if you're the OP, this is a public forum and many others read what is posted also.
