For a good time, crunch these numbers: Multiply the NP435's 6.7:1 Low, the Mountain Gear's 3.26:1 deep Under, the NP205's 2:1 Low range, and the Ranger's 3.54:1 axle gears. That's a cliff-climbing 151.10:1 final drive ratio with highway gears in the axles! Brabnod does not supply crossmembers because of application variations. The Mountain Gear's 14-inch length is just 5 inches longer than the stock NP435-to-NP205 adapter, but that's enough to require new front and rear driveshafts.
