I haven't see anything about this here, but instead of regearing both front and rear diffs in my jeep is it possible to change it in the TC? I have select trac... NP231 I believe? I assume you can't do it because no one's talked about doing it but I know that there are two gears with a chain around them which I assume makes the transfer case work and I can't help but wonder why you can't get some smaller gears and effectively "re-gear to 4.55" or something close. Someone on here sent me a link to a website that calculates what speed you'll be at and what RPMs in each gear with different diff ratios (its designed to help people figure out which gears to get when they lift and get bigger tires) and there's a spot in the formula for your transfer case in / out ratio so this is what got me thinking.
Could someone explain to me how and why this would or wouldn't work?
