Not trying to one-up anybody but my old single axle med. duty dump truck has one of those 2 speed rears, Eaton, get this- 6.50-8.85!.. The spicer 5 speed is 1:1 in 5th!.. Of course 11r 22.5 truck tires, but wow does she have some gear..
On topic, I like a combo for the street that gets you right at 10:1 in first gear, all in, through the tires.
