Jerry Bransford Yep based on that 33" tire size, don't go with 4.10 which just isn't enough gear for that big of a tire. I made the mistake years ago of only regearing to 4.10 for my then-new 33" tires & it was only a few days before I figured out that ratio decision was a big mistake. For 33" tires, you want 4.56 & for 35", go for 4.88.

Big Cole 4.10s aren't adequate for 33s and definitely not good enough for 35s. At a minimum you should look into 4.56s

If that 4.10 R&P gear set with the thick ring gear is used, I wouldn't use it since used gears are much (!) harder to get set up properly. I'd go with new standard R&P gears & just get the 3.92 & up Detroit Locker.

What size tires & which transmission do you have?
thanks for the info. ill talk to the guy that is setting up my rearend and ask him about the gears. I have 33's going to 35's within the next yr. I have a 5speed AX15 think is what its called.

30-284 Probably need to know how much thicker they are as the thicker ones are manufactured thicker so that they will fit a different carrier, usually the stock gear ratio carrier. If you have thick 4.56 gears then they would probably fit on a carrier meant for 3.07 gears or at least a carrier in that class.

detroit locker ?

ok so I have call Eaton and could not get anyone to come to the phone and I have searched and cant get a straight answer.
I have a non rubi D44 and I'm looking at getting a Detroit locker for it. My question is this. I got a free set of thick 4.10 gears and I was told I have to get the right Detroit locker to accept the thick gears. Is this true? if so which locker do I need to get. I have called a couple company's and no one was convincing they knew which locker to order. can someone point me in the right direction please.
