u gotta keep the front diff and the rear diff the same gear ratio. thats why u gotta run the same size tires on a 4x4

this is why it's done at the bevel gears.

its a 200 dollar gear reduction. everyone that has it done says it's the shiz.

spin huge meats like stockers

tell us more this sounds like a must have.

its pretty easy to do.

you know the square plate where the rear seal is in? you remove that plate and on the side where the dip stick is.

you'll need shims. you have to set the gear lash.

sounds like a pain .. but maybe worth it...

Hm, my dad has a teryx. Wonder if he'll even notice........

On a serious note doesnt sound like a bad idea. I'd assume clutching could be less aggressive also? Is there anywhere to buy the ring, pinion, and shims other than the stealership? May be something worth looking into.

i'm guessing you could buy the stuff online and maybe save some money... i think this will be my next mod.........

the dealership cost is around 230 bucks total.

I did my own gears in my Jeep... can't be much different than that... just on a smaller scale..
