Suffering from poor performance and reduced fuel economy resulting from oversized tires?

A Nitro gear change will help get that performance and economy back!

If you’ve fitted larger tires to your vehicle then you are likely experiencing a loss in performance, fuel economy, and more constant transmission gear “hunting” - This is because the larger tires reduce your engine’s RPMs below the optimal power band. Re-gearing the differentials in your vehicle is the only way to get your vehicle back into its optimal operating RPM range, thus improving performance and reducing strain on your vehicle’s drivetrain. This is especially important for today’s vehicles as they feature tall factory gearing and overdrive transmissions which are less tolerant to increase in tire size or the weight of added accessories.

It’s a common misconception that gear changes are reserved only to hardcore off-roaders or trucks with huge tires. However, re-gearing is one of the single most beneficial modifications you can make to keep the performance, economy, and durability of your daily-driven 4x4. This is a mod for anyone with larger tires, increased weight, or for increased performance on stock vehicles for towing or increased acceleration.

We at Nitro Gear & Axle realize the difficulty for the average consumer or install shop to compile the list of parts and prices required when doing a gear change. To make it easier for everyone the experts at Nitro are introducing an industry first- “Gear Packages” for many popular 4x4 applications. One part number. One price. One click away. U-tube:

Rear Carrier Bearing WARNING!!! June 13, 2017
Reviewer: Ethan Price from Headland, AL United States  
Beware of the rear carrier bearings. They MUST be re-used. I was NOT told this beforehand. When we went to press on the bearings supplied in the "Master Install Kit" we discovered the bearings were too small of an inside diameter. When I brought this up with Nitro, I was told to re-use the factory bearing. Since it had already been removed and damaged I was unable to re-use the bearing. I was forced to use a set of front carrier bearings. Thank God they are only a 16th of an inch wider and my mechanic could make them work. As of right now, you CANNOT get the factory rear carrier bearings!!! Nitro was nice enough to ship out the front carrier bearings because the "Master Install Kit" did NOT have what was needed and they did NOT advertise the fact that the kit did NOT have the proper bearings. It would be nice if Nitro would let us know to re-use the factory bearings before pulling the stock bearings off the housing and discovering the bearings that came with the kit don't work
