      High-Performance Gears. Get that much-needed extra boost in performance for your Wrangler with the Nitro Gear & Axle Dana 44 Front Ring Gear and Pinion Kit. Nitro Gear’s 4.56 gears have a higher numerical gear ratio than your Wrangler’s factory-installed ones. This, in turn, helps your Wrangler achieve better performance by getting those large tires in place. These shorter gears compensate for the larger tires’ rolling diameter to recover lost acceleration and drivability.

      Re-Gearing To Regain Efficiency. When you increase the rolling diameter of your tires, you also push the engines to work twice as hard to move them. This results in more fuel consumption and a decrease in performance. To solve this, you need to re-gear to match your new tires and recover lost performance – the exact thing this kit by Nitro is made for.

      Premium Construction. The Nitro Gear & Axle Dana 44 Front Ring Gear and Pinion Kit is CNC-machined out of 8620 steel gear forging and precision-machined for a perfect fit. As an added touch, Nitro Gear also backs this product with a 2-year warranty, ensuring you get nothing but customer satisfaction.

      Professional Installation Recommended. The installation of Ring and Pinion Gears is an intricate process, so it is recommended that you hire professional help. Follow the included instructions for best results.

      2-Year Warranty. The Nitro Gear & Axle Dana 44 Front Ring Gear and Pinion Kit comes with a 2-year warranty that protects against defects and starts on the first purchase date. You also need to provide set-up specifications. Please see the manufacturer’s website to check their full terms and conditions.

      Application. The Nitro Gear & Axle Dana 44 Front Ring Gear and Pinion Kit is designed for use on all 2007-2018 Wrangler JK Rubicons.

      Technical Note. Please note that JK Gears are thicker than traditional Dana 44 gears. JKs may only fit 3.73 & lower Dana 44 carriers. Aside from that, JK Gears also have double-drilled ring gear bolts and ring gear bolt holes on carriers may need to be drilled larger.
