Creeper gear for samurai

Hi i have a 1986 suzuki samurai and am wondering if i should get a creeper gear for it. It has been sitting a while but it runs fine and now i want to work on it. I'm going to get a 2 inch lift and 30" tires on it. I'd probably use it for mudding, a little offroading, and maybe some light rock crawling. I am wondering if I should get a creeeper gear or leave it. And which one should i get?

I assume you are talking about lower gears in the transfercase. If so I'd run the 6.5 to 1 set and just bypass all the others. I've got most of my stuff from LowRange.

I've got the 6.5s in my rig with 5.29s in the axles and it works real good with 39.5" Isuks. My wifes rig has the 5 to 1 gears in the transfercase with 32" tires and it's marginal. Sooner or later I'll get around to putting lower gears in the axles since her's still has the stock 3.73 in them.
