I could have had a lower 1st put in when I had the rebuild done and specifically didn't do it. I can cruise at 15mph in the woods in first, any more than that and I have to shift. A lower 1st would lower my 1st gear cruising speed and I'm happy with it where it's at. I can kick a wheelie if I'm going slow on the stock gear so I think it's low enough. Someone that does more serious offroading than me might want one.
