    So with a but of research I have deturmaned that I have a 4.6 final with a trans with the following ratios
    1st 3.580
    2nd 2.077
    3rd 1.360
    4th 1.000
    5th 0.811

    Acording to the cummins crate engine gear calculator to have a happy gear ratio for the dielse I would need a 2.73 final which is what was installed in the d44 from a Cherokee and will be perfect for 31 to 33 inch tires

    The guy I got them from said that his daughter had trouble getting in and out of the truck. I took the hilift to it this morning and it did perfectly.

    So I took my hi lift apart yesterday for a rebuild and repaint, turns out that the spine is slightly bent. I can cut off the bent part and use it as a 36 inch lift but I'm leaning towards ordering a new 60 inch spine. For $40 I can have a new spine here straight from hilift.
