No that's what mine has i believe. I don't actually own it yet really. But as far as I know he's holding it while I off my grumman this week. I called international and gave them the vin but all they said was only listed available gear was a 5.38 and very likely what's in it. I'm looking for a 4.44 or so for 65 mph at 2250. Randy's ring and pinion has calculators you can use. 11r22.5 is 43.1 inches tall. Considering low pro at 37 " with a 3.73 for real similar. I think 65 is plenty. Even in a small car you really start losing mpg over 65.

Unless you need the clearance provided by low-pros, stick with standard height tires. The ride difference between the two is night and day.

I wish someone would trade me my damn S110 with 3.54's for one with 4.10's or 4.30's... I need to bump my RPMs up a bit

I have LP 22.5's on my truck and it rides like a buckboard. I am wonder how much difference putting 11r22.5's on it would make?

I was thinking about lp's for getting the floor closer to the ground for ramps and vehicle loading. But 3" difference in ride height isn't going to be world's of difference. Driving the front tires up on blocks would be just as effective. My shop neighbor just gave me two piece semi car hauler ramps. I'll have a center leg to connect the two pieces and support them so they will be like 12'+ and I don't think I'm going to have loading issues. The other thought was if the 3.73 was all I could find gear wise. Doesn't seem to be the case.

You won't go from a buckboard to a cadillac, but it's definitely noticeable when going the other way.

How high is the floor in the rear from the ground? Also how wide inside?
