I was hearing talk of the 5.38 gears for the 14 bolt. Have hey come out with them yet? And who will make them?

I would have searched, but search is down. So could someone give some insight on this?

Good luck. I dont think we will ever see them, honestly. Check your clearances to the casing with just the 5.13's, and it'll be pretty evident how tough it'd be to squeeze 5.38's in there without grinding enough out of the casing to render it a safety hazard.

Randy's is supposed to be making them...As for when we will see them I am not sure, the sooner the better for myself.

You can call Randy's and get put on the "list". They will call you and take your cash when the gears are ready.

Gears

I thik i will stick with the 5.13 gears for now. I do not want to wait that long for these gears there is just not enough difference in them to wait.

Thanks guys.

There is a difference, and it is leveraged by your T-case and trans gearing.

I went ahead and put 5.38s in the front of my build-up...Figure if the 5.38's arent out by "trail time" Ill go back to 5.13's.

Gearing

I am running an auto tranny with a Klune-V 4.1 then the D300 t-case. I was wanting the gearing for when i run to the store for fuel or something or running down the gravel roads to get to the trail head. I need a little more power there. I am running a 283 chevy motor.

Krylon, I think he is "advance" selling them, and having them shipped as soon as they arrive, think he said "Could ship Friday if they get thru customs" ... ?

Ya, I reread it and realized that after I posted.. Well hopefully for whoever preordered, he delivers in a timely manner! Was going to order, but I'm not far along enough with my project...

Would going from 5.13 to 5.38s make much of a difference.
No, but if you are regearing 5.38 may be worth it.

I know you're a long time, respected member of the board, but I'm going to reiterate what I said in another thread...

I'll believe it when I see/hear customers that have received their product. I have my doubts that we will ever see the 5.38 gears on the market.
