Gears

I have a set of G2 4:56 gears, I was just curious if there are any that people favor over others? I didnt pay a bad price for them compared to what i have seen for sale is the reason I got them and read a lot of good reviews about them. Seems like recently I have read more bad reviews than good lately which is making me second guess my purchase

Exclamation

I can only safely recommend what I use: 4:56 Motive Gears in a DTT .
There are no doubt other options available that have worked well for many Hemi truck owners.

I hear it really doesn't matter what gears it's more about how well they are installed. I was quoted $1000 to get them installed

I do think the quality of the gears does matter somewhat...some materials are softer than others and some brands also have a tendency to 'whine'...but you are also very correct about installation...the best set-up will perform like crap if it isn't installed properly by someone that really knows what they are doing and then you do your part to break them in properly IMO.

Garage
You mention a $1000 for the install. The question is what does that include? Labor only? Two master install kits? Fluids? Does it include the 500 mile check and fluids? Wheels seals are a good addition at the time of install, but are not part of the install kits and have to be bought seperate. And how many gear sets has your mechanic installed in a 9.25 axle? If none then he most likely doesn't have the correct tools for the job. What guarantee does he offer. The gears are often damaged with a bad insall. Who pays for the new set? There are lots of things that need to be understood before handing over your truck.

Those are all questions I will ask when calling around to find someone who has installed gears on a 9.25 axle to figure out who I will use. The people I got the quote from for $1000 is the installation of front and rear with all the proper fluids but don't know anything further. Those are all questions everyone should ask before deciding who to use, thank you very much VA for informing me of the questions I didn't think of. I have always had a need for speed ever since I was a little boy and even when I started driving at the age of 12 lol fast cars and trucks! You gota pay to play and it ain't cheap but well worth it in my book

Don't buy gears based on price.
Buy based on quality.
I would use, Nitro, Motive or AAM.
Some gears like usa standard(aka yukon/randy) may be lacking lapping and that can wind up having a noise.
I had a customer 2 weeks ago come in with some non lapped cheap gear, and it has a noise when going between load and coast.
That cheap gear is not cheap anymore since now the aam set is 300 and the labor AGAIN.

I already have G2 gears sittin in my garage. Hope I don't have any problems with them. My old boss has Yukon and hasn't had any problems yet. He has had them over 2 years now

I much prefer Motive over anything else but noise is the 'only problem' I've seen with Yukon providing the installation and break-in is done correctly.

with whatever you use .
