Ohh. Actually, I donít know. I will ask the guy but itís highly unlikely that he will remember it. This guy does set differentials all day. But Ill ask him.

I just gave him the r&p, m226 and master install kit from American driveline.

RG&A was founded by former employees of now defunct Superior Axle and sells direct and through offroad shops.

I recently installed RG&A/Circle K 5.38 gears in my '06 Jeep LJ Rubicon. (RG&A/Circle K is the only source for 5.38 gears for the Dana 44 TJ/LJ Rubicon axles.) They are high quality gears.

See: https://revolutiongear.com/shop/rev/...n-d44d44-koyo/


Adapting JK Rubicon gears to the Nissan variant of the Dana 44 is indeed possible, but it will require someone with experience, patience (and spacers). However, before going down that road you would be well advised to consult with Steve at Rugged Rocks, who is the Nissan Xterra/Frontier gear expert.

See: https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/nissa...c-42_1320.html


_____________________
* The "thick" gears are necessary in the TJ/LJ and JK Rubicons due to the factory locker. Gear sets for open differentials have a thinner ring gear and typically require a change of carriers to properly locate the ring gear when going deeper than 3.73:1. Note also that TJ/LJ Rubicon and JK Rubicon gear sets are not interchangeable.


Bro, thatís a lot of cool information. The diff is loaded and Ive already gone for 5-6 trail runs. And it is running smooth. Looks like I gave the diff to safe hands for regearing.

Actually jk44 gears will fit I have 5.13s in mine under my toyota. Rugged rocks off road sells a shim to shim the ring over to the pinion. It's a 1/4 think. I have the template and ill be making the shim. I have a vortec 5.7 sm465 and 208 t case. I'm mean to it and I have had no failure.
