g'day guys wanting to know how hard it is to fit the reduction gears and what you need to do it. cheers
Hahaha, Sure your not on anything LOL.
Ok thanks, I have a 20 Ton press & the gear pullers.Both 43% and 85% gears require light grinding of the transfer case. Easy peasy with a 5" grinder. If you want to attempt yourself make sure you pick up an assortment of gear pullers. I also found that I had to replace most of the steel snap rings and the brass synchro ring (a few teeth were broken) - so there is a chance you may need to order a few bits and pieces. I also used my 12t press which was invaluable (both for pressing and holding the bastard while torquing the output pinion up to 300 Nm or whatever it is...).

Also are 85% reduction gears the best choice for a go everywhere tourer.
Thanks Danga but I think it will be either 24% or the 43% reduction gears now if I decide to get some as I am running 33" tyres with 4.1 diffs & a TD42 turbo engine.Nissan Low Range Gears | Marks 4WD Adaptors
Personally for a go everywhere tourer I'd go those 63% reduction gears. 85s would prob be to low for beach driving if you do much of that
It is if you drive a 2.8t!I've never used low range on the beach, is it common for people to drop it back to low range for a bit of sand ?
