The front and rear diffs are the same ratios (obviously) so it must be that the 1:1 in high is for both and 1:2.7 in low is the same for both take offs so if the elect motor was put on the PTO for the front and only engaged in high, wouldn't that mean that the power would be transferred both to the rear wheels and to the tranny, which could be kept in neutral.

I used my brain a little bit more, lol. The above won't work. The front hub and input from the ICE will have to be switched. That is the only way to get the power from the tranny to the rear wheels.

if you turn the front shaft, the rear shaft had better turn 1:1 with it. The 2.7 is in regards to the engine vs BOTH shafts. And the chances of the motor spline just working is nil anyway. C'mon here.

Yes, that is what my edit said about the ratios.

I'm not sure what you mean by the "spline just working is nil anyway"

too many rabbit holes here for me, let me know if you understand the coaxial sprocket concept with a motor chained off the side at the right ratio or not (it is not unlike a typical transfer case).

I'm begging off any other speculation with zero details to go off of and other misconceptions.
