    From my experience, you can only get a thick ring gear if it is 4.56,4.88 and 5.13's. I have a thick gear set (4.88) cause i didnt want to change the carrier. DOnt qoute me on this but i dont think you can get a thick gear set if it is 4.10 or numerically lower.....
    The ring gear is way thick on mine. Noticeably out of porportion. Let me know what set your working with....

    or get ahold of Randys ring pinion. They could help also.

    K, I'm looking for a set of 4.56's and I have a 4.10 carrier. 1 set of 4.56's I found is 1.5" thick, and the guy doesn't know if they're "thick" or "thin". Of course I'm hopin they're "thick" /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
