Icon5 4:56?

I already know I am going to get 4:56 gears bc I am moving up to 35"s. What specific brand should I get and from where? I dont want to spend an outrageous amount bc I am about to buy tires too.

I've heard good things about Superior Axle. They have em for like 200 on summit for the rear. I don't know about the fronts tho.

I have not had a problem with my Genuine Gears.....they make both front and rears for Rangers....

Yukon Gears is the best on the market, but they a bit more....


get them from Summit Racing...make sure you get the master install kits along with the gears...

Yukon has a value line also that isn't as expensive. I got those and so far so good. You can get them a bunch of places on eBay. Mine are only being driven by a 3.0 so I don't think I need something designed for 400 HP and 550 ft/lb, lol...

I'm running "Genuine Gears" and have had them installed for about 5 years now and over 175,000 miles later, they're still going strong. I bought mine at www.4wheelparts.com.

superior is just that. they're the easiest gears to get good patterns and strong as hell. yukon i'd say is second best, as every set of yukon gears ive set up took a little more time to get an acceptable pattern.

I think those might work. 4:88 might be overkill though.
