      High Performance. If you want to customize your Wrangler with large off-roading tires that will not sacrifice any engine power to push the added diameter, then you need the 5.38 geared Motive Dana 44 Front Gears and Pinion Kit. You will automatically notice a positive change in the performance of your Jeep after installing them and experience a softer more relaxing cruising experience even on bumpy terrains.

      Re-Gearing. On increasing the diameter of your tires without re-gearing, the engine of your Wrangler JK is forced work extra harder to turn them often leading to reduced performance and increase in fuel consumption. The good thing is, once you re-gear to these aftermarket ones, you will regain the lost performance, acceleration and fuel economy.

      Quality Construction. These gears have been constructed using a heavy-duty stainless steel precisely cut to ensure a perfect installation. They are extremely quiet when installed correctly assuring a peaceful ride due to their tight tolerance.

      Required Upgrade. If you are currently using a 3.21 Ratio, you will need to purchase a new front carrier.

      Professional Installation. Installation of the 5.38 Motive Dana 44 Front Gear and Pinion kit requires mechanical expertise. It takes approximately 6 hours to complete the installation when equipped with the right tools.

      Warranty. Motive warrants its products for 12-month/50,000-mile from original purchase date limited to only manufacturing defects. User negligence and other avoidable damages are not covered.

      Application. The 5.38 Motive Dana 44 Front Ring and Pinion gears are designed to fit all 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models.
