M205 – I removed the stock R180 stock front differential due to the known weakness of it cracking. The M205 front differential out of a Nissan titan bolts right up. Along with this I was able to use stock Nissan Titan half shafts.
4.56 gears for M205 – Due to the gearing of my Xterra 3.69. And the M205 not coming in this verity I decided to lower my gear ratio and move up tire size. With going to 4.56 gears I reduced the gear ratio lower then stock which will help with off-roading and getting the momentum going of all the additional weight.
ARB Locker – I also installed an ARB Locker into the new front M205. I figured why not if I was going to re-geared it and rebuild the M205 I bought. I have to say thanks to RuggedRocks for getting ARB to build these.
M226 Re-geared to 4.56 – With doing the front differential you have to also re-due the rear differential so I upgraded the M226 rear axle to 4.56 gears.
