What's up with the no questions lifetime warranty on gears? I see 4WPW is doing it as well as a few others. Seems too good to be true.

I need gears for my 44 and would like to buy from one of the local companies, but how can I say no to this?

Looking for any feedback about these gears. What kind are they?

Genuine Gears really suck in my opinion......I have broke a set in a Toy front end. Thats great they have a warrenty but who want to go to all of the trouble to cash in on it when they break <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

I stick by Dan/Spicer or U.S. Ya get what ya pay for.

Thats how most things are these days with lifetime warranties. Its cheaper to give out a cheap product and replace it with another than to make a good product the first time. I'll stick with the good stuff.

Well I thought about it and picked up a set of Dana gears.

My last gear swap I used percision gears from reider racing. Never had a single problem in 9 years of use.

How about Yukon gears? Randy's Ring and Pinion claim they are the best aftermaket gear.

What gears do you use Gearman?

i had a set of the life timers in a raer 44, i pulled the cover to check before a big event... they were all chipped, i called and they sent me new ones... i had to pay the shipping... imho i wouldnt do it... the only reason i tryed them is the 44 wasnt holding up for me, i had broken 2 spicers prior to that and was tired of spending $ on gears... i have since moved on to a different axle..


yeahh gearman, what do you use?

I run Genuine in the front. I can handle dealing with the inferiority of them with the life time replacement. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">
Now the rear, thats a different story. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I've got a set of Genuine that I need to install up front in my XJ. I figure that if they break I will just cash in on the replacements, sell them on JU, and get a set of Yukon or Spicer. The only reason that I bought them was because I got a killer deal and the "no question's asked" warranty sounded good to me since I am still learning to set up gears.

Pretty much everybody that I have talked to who runs them says the same thing, "They're fine up front, but I would NEVER run them in the rear." I haven't met anybody who actually broke a set of front 4.10, but that doesn't say all that much. I'll let you know what kind of torture they get from me and how they work out.

My $.02
