G2 Master kits include all the parts that are needed to properly install a ring and pinion. These G2 kits include hard to find parts like a proper shim kit, replacement pinion nut , crush sleeve, pinion seal, pinion bearings, carrier bearings, ring gear bolts, silicone sealer, Loctite and gear marking compound. these are the parts that the auto parts store never seems to have or ever herd of.



G2 Master Install Kit pros/cons

As a whole, with minor modifications to the install kit, this gear install would have been easy. In the end, after supplimenting and waiting for parts, the install was very smooth and needed minimal rework. Pinion depth was right on 1st time, and we only needed to adjust the carrier and backlash once... The frustration was that simple, inexpensive parts were the hold up. I recommend the install kit include a variety of shims for OUTSIDE the carrier bearings, longer bolts to accomodate the thicker Rubicon Dana 44 carrier (they stripped when torqued down, the ring gear holes were too shallow for new stock bolts, so we used stock bolts with washers to make it work), and an extra crush washer.
