Differential gearing is a hugely underestimated key to unlocking more drivability out of your pickup. By correctly gearing your axles to match your driving situations and tire size you are creating a situation where your engine’s existing power is being used more efficiently. This has so many pros that one begins to notice after completing a re-gear. Better low end torque for navigating those mountain passes while pulling a load, or for the highway cruisers, lower engine rpm at those high speeds. This all translates to less wear and tear on drivetrain components as well as less stress on that working engine. We also can’t forget that with regearing, the opportunity to install a Limited Slip Differential or Locking Differential should be considered. Even if your pickup isn’t primarily used offroad, there are countless times when the ability to positively lock your axles is hugely beneficial (Burnouts). For more information regarding the benefits of regearing your pickup’s axles listen to The Diesel Podcast episode: Click Here Off-Road Alumiduty & 2.8L Cummins Jeep Swaps where Diesel Pros owner Gary Fields explains some of these benefits.
