Probably not. But the 4.0 and 2.7 would be used a lot! Just not together much. That's really low. I think it's more about choices of gearing options vs having a super duper low gear.

Which interesting enough falls right inline with a NV4500 and an Atlas 5:1.

Lots of ways of achieving the needed gearing that's for sure!  :driving:

Using tools you have not used in a while is like shaking hands with old friends. :nod:

For what its worth my current jeeps have the following setups

1. 2007 Rubicon with stock drive train aside from 4.88 gears and 35s: 4.46 (first gear), 4:1 (low), 4.88(gear) = 87.06 even with the v6 i find myself wishing i had a lower low gear when I did the Rubicon last year. Though I still say the 2.5 4banger has more will to live at low rpm than the 3.8l

2. cj2a proto jeep: 4.3l v6, SM465 (6.55 1st, 3.58 2nd), dana 18 with terraflex 3.15:1 low range kit, 5.13 gears, and 35s. results 105.8 in 1st, 57.85 2nd. I find myself using 2nd gear for most trails in this rig but the low 1st gear is great for playing in the rocks as you can practically momentarily come to a stop without stalling (backlash starts adding up). Obviously with the 4 cylinder it would be nice to be a bit lower if you are crawling in the big rocks / ledges
1990 YJ 4cly, ax5, 2.5 inch BDS lift, 31 MTr\'s,  Powertrax-lockers all around, track-bars removed, boomerang shackles, warn m8000 winch, electric fan. [sold but not forgotten]
