I have been fiddling with gear calculations this morning and not sure I understand how to properly read them. At this point I am doing 55 in 5th gear at about 4000 RPM (also in 4th gear at 3000rpm I am doing about 35mph). I am wondering if that sounds correct?

My set up:
I have an earlier samurai transmission
4.16 gears in transfer case
5.125 in diffs
31" tires

A gearing calculator that I think confirms that this would be normal based on my set up.

Finally getting around to putting my bumper in a box together... that was easy. Should have done that sooner. Just have to take it off, weld it out and paint. I like the simple look.

The best gear tool I've found is http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html.

It has two columns with forms where you can compare side-by-side setups.  I like to enter all stock entries on the left, including 205/70R15 tires, then click "Copy form" to fill in the right.  Then, play with different t-case, differential, and tire size on the right to see how it compares to stock numbers.
