Please note that when changing the gear ratio of your F-150's differential that the calibration of your speedometer will no longer be correct and will display the wrong speed. However, you can easily fix this annoying issue with a Handheld Tuner
This 3.55 ratio Motive Gear Stock Performance Front Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1997 to 2017 4WD F-150's equipped with a 8.8" (10 bolt) independent front suspension differential. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles.Please Note.
If you are unsure if your F-150 has an 8.8 in. (10 Bolt) or a 9.75 in. (12 Bolt) differential, please check with your local Ford dealer to determine what rear is in your truck.
Technical Note. If your F-150 is a four wheel drive model, you will need to change both the front and rear gear ratios to match. Failure to do so will cause severe damage to both the transfer case and transmission. Installation costs will vary, but a good rule of thumb is between $250 and $300. Be sure to work with a reliable shop that you trust for installations.
