D44 cj7 gear question

I got 3.30 gear ratio and I want 4.56.

Can I put thick gear in my low case.

Which brand and part number, direct bolt on?

You can get thick Dana 44 gears from 4.10 up to 5.13 that fit a series 3 carrier. Your 3.30 gears are on a series 3 carrier. Isuzu Rodeos from 93 to 97 all use thick Dana 44 gears if they are 4.10, 4.30 or 4.56. All TJ Rubicon gears are thick gears from 4.10 up numerically. If you buy TJ Rubicon gears you would have to drill out the holes in the carrier to fit the 7/16" ring bolts but I did that on an Eaton E-locker with a hand drill and it worked fine.
