And like Cobalt said, stay off pavement if you do decide to do this!
Sorry Cobalt, meant solid ground as well as pavement, don't understand why I can't edit sometimes.

Use the higher ratio (lower number) in the front. Whether the split you want to use is too much or not I have no idea. Be sure to unlock it or pull the front d-shaft before driving on solid ground.
