    Does anyone know if they make a thick gear set for Dana 60s. I ask because my carrier is 4.10 and down I intend to lock it and run 5.13s so do I have to buy a locker for 4.56 and up or can I buy a 4.10 and down locker and get thick gears like my 14FF.

    Thanks

    I understand what is easier but sometimes easier is not always an option.

    Never heard of thick gears but I do know they make ring spacers for the ring gear.

    Yes, they makea thick gear set for a dana 60. But, they only make a reverse rotation thick gear set. No one makes a standard rotation thick gear.

    So, only option for going lower with the same carrier is a spacer. But, if you are going to buy a detroit locker, it will be a replacement carrier anyway.. so just get the low gear carrier and you are good to go. (that's what I did)

    So the most cost effective and safest way is to wait and get the detroit when I regear.

    Thanks for the information
