If you only do work in the forward direction, it reduces to a question of optimization...
If backing something heavy up a winding hill in 4Lo is in the picture, I would think twice about the "weaker" gear set.
I've been in 4Lo reverse with the wheels taking turns breaking loose - stock gears - hoping I don't hear a snap and have things come to a grinding halt. :notworthy:

If it wasn't for the strength concern, I may have regeared even with the 33's. (for the way I use the PW)

On the other hand, the Power Wagons aren't high torque diesels so maybe it doesn't matter.


I am on stock size tires as I think you are, and even with those I would like 4.56's, if not 4.88's. The trans gears are just so high.

When the jump to 37's comes I think I will go to 5.13's.
Funny—all this talk of gearing and tires, at one point 4.88’s & 37’s were like the holy grail step-up for the Best-Gen trucks, put us on par or above with the ‘13 and older crowd who mostly gravitate to 35’s and keep their 4.56’s. Now the move is to 39/40” tires and 5.13’s—and I’ve been secretly discussing with my inner engineer the virtue of abandoning the 37” experience and moving down to lowly 35’s ( HUSH YOUR MOUTH) when these Nittos are done :jawdrop:

The unsprung weight difference, added driveline stress, and steep increase in rolling moment of inertia haunts my nerd alter-ego, but the cool kid in me wants 5.13’s and 40’s (STILL YOUR MIND, DONT LISTEN TO THOSE MOAB HERETICS AND GYPSIES, THEY’ll PILFER YOUR TREASURE AND PLUNDER YOUR TRUCK) so i war with my innersef, but i think 35’s and 4.88’s look pretty great for all around use....maybe a bit higher RPM at 75mph than I’d like, but I’ll take that over the fear of constant brake fade, and NO, I’M NOT INSTALLING HYDRO ASSIST STEERING, OR A BIGGER MASTER CYLINDER AND HIGH CAPACITY STEEL BRAIDED LINES—GET THEE BEHIND ME SATAN

I forgot about Javier's, he did some work on our LC and he did the entire engine/tranny swap on my father's FJ40. I'll get with him when it's time.

Small world lol. Yeah he’s had some really nice FJ40’s come through his shop. If you end up needing any advanced fabrication work done go with brave
