When you lifted your DL did you have the stock push button 4WD?
I have a '90 Loyale w/stock S/R push button 4WD and I find that turning 30's is VERY hard in 2wd, or 4wd.
If I'm not mistaken, 4HI is 1:1 and 4LOW is 1.4:1 geared?
In 2wd, its the same 1:1 on both S/R and D/R right?
So my question I guess:
With a D/R swap, in 2wd i will still feel the drag (loss of gearing) on road, but in 4LO, it makes up for it offroad?
Just a note: Its VERY hard to turn 30's in 4HI
Any input on S/R or D/R conversions would be nice as well. Also, could people running bigger tires (26 inches or bigger) reply with what trans they are using.

Do you have the 27x9.50R15 SSR's?
Whats required to do a S/R to D/R conversion??

I have a 1990 Loyale SPFI S/R trans NO-turbo.
I had on 235/75R15 National XT 6000's ? (30x9.00R15)
The gearing was completely gone with that big of tire, 4HI wasnt very useful either.
I'm considering buying the 27x9.50R15 Super Swamper SSR's. Would these tires turn alot easier than my 30" street tires? Should I consider D/R conversion now for 4x4 use? I found that on stock (165X80R13) tires, the problem of not having 4LO was no big deal really, but with the bigger mud tires I'm sort of concerned about not having 4LO because of how the 30" tires felt.
Any opinions on this?

I will work on buying/scoring a D/R setup.
I'll post when I'm ready to do the conversion.. BTW: do you know of any links that show pics on this D/R conversion?

Would it matter which D/R i use?
I see Noah88DL used a GL tranny, used from an EA82 for an EA82...
