Just bought an '07 RTS. Drove Nissan Frontiers since '97. I'm really pleased with the move to the Ridgeline. Much more versatility than the frontier PLUS 4WD. I live in S. Texas and drive on the beach (Padre Island National Seashore) and was wondering about 4WD performance in sand. Thanks.
I had a hard time trying to figure exactly what my next truck was going to be. I wanted a swiss army knife vehicle in a way. Something I could have fun in, haul a bit, load a bit, hit the trails a bit, but still be VERY spacious and comfy:) I traded a 5.7L Hemi Grand Cherokee for my Ridgeline...
How do both differentials end up at a common ratio when the Front Differential ratio is 4.533 yet the Rear Differential is 3.384 after passing through the transfer case at a ratio of .537?
Irrelevant but peripherally of interest:
Auto Transmission ratio's:
1st = 2.693
2nd = 1.566
3rd = 1.023...
