Looking to get some gears

Hey Guys, I am looking into getting some gears for the D44 in the garage. I'm not sure what brand. I wish I could spring for a locker, but I am probably going to just get a new carrier. Let me know what you guys think. Oh and I'm going with 4:56

Whats up John? The gears i bought for my new front axle are Motive which i got at EAst Coast Gear . I have heard good things about them and ECG said they were a good choice so i went with them. I have had good luck with superior gears, as thats what in my front axle. We also put some Yukon gears in my buddy Jody's jeep a few years ago and they have also held up great.

The only thing gear wise would be a locker. I am happy with how capable my jeep is. I just want to know what 5th gear feels like.

Yeah you will need a master install kit. I will happy to help you, but i will most likely have you do all the work and just tell you/show you what to do, that way you can say you set up the gears yourself...

well one of you guys needs to get on it, I don't know why for sure, but I get a bit of a stiffy looking inside diff covers Seeing some replaced and set up would probably send me over the edge

You should get a new carrier, one made by ARB or OX.... Since your d44 most likely has a trackloc lsd, you will need to not only get a carrier, but all the internals as well, as yours will not transfer over. I think you can get thick cut gears instead of a new carrier, but you would have to research that.

SlackJaw especially if there is a locker involved.
Willis those both sound great, I'll ask the boss for a raise tomorrow. It has a open carrier 3:73 gear. As far as internals you mean the internals in the carrier. Does the master install come with bearings? If I add a locker later on can I reuse the gears?
