what gears are in your axle?

What gear is in your t case now?

Its not a simple answer, it varies. You can do the math.

I believe the calculation is still on therangerstation.com

I am guessing 19 or 20 tooth depending on what gear ratio you have in your diff
 












Use the Ford Motorsport formula:

Driven Gear Teeth = (Drive Gear Teeth x Axle Ratio x Tire Rev. Per Mile) / 1000

There are 7 teeth on the gear in my BW1354 (and since the speedo worked fine with my 4405, I'll assume there's 7 teeth on that gear too). You can find the tire's revolutions per mile under the "Specs" link on TireRack.com. From there it's simple math:
? = ( 7 * your axle ratio * 677 ) / 1000

I have a ScanGauge and the speedo and SG readout are almost identical. There are 32" BFGs on my Ex, too. However, I have 4.10 axles. This is the formula I used.
 






Thanks Bronco this works out good Im putting in 4.10s next week. 7teeth sounds right . thanks again
 






7 is the number of teeth on the gear inside the transfer case. With 4.10 axles, you'll need a 19 tooth speedo gear.
