Does your four wheel drive F-150 spend most of its days towing or blazing a path through the wilderness? If you answered yes to either question you should consider upgrading to a set of Motive's Stock Performance 4.56 Ring and Pinion Gears. These Motive 4.56 Gears feature a much steeper ratio than the factory installed gears, making them ideal for the serious off roader who is looking to increase low end torque. While 4.56 gears can be used on the street, they are really intended for off road or towing applications.Superior Construction.
Motive Ring and Pinion Gears are CNC machined from high grade 8620 gear steel and factory lapped for a precise fit. Each set of gears are hardness tested prior to leaving the factory to ensure the highest quality possible. Unlike other aftermarket brands, Motive Gears do not have a reputation for annoying gear whine. Motive is so confident in the quality of their gears that they are backed with a 12 month, 100,000 mile warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.Recommended Upgrade.
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 4.56 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.
