Default Bad gears

Beware of non factory gears Our 2010 2wd crew had 10.000 miles on it and 3.21 gears we purchased a camper around 6000 pounds would not pull for crap so I had gears changed to 3.90 motive Gear by a highly respected driveline shop 50 years exp. and drove my truck the 500 mile break in every thing was fine hooked onto my camper for labor day 210 mile trip we made it 60 miles rear end cooked dry and bearings trying to lock up and now I have a internet company to deal with the factory gears were way overpriced at 1150.00 + 600 install at dealer tried to save money and not so good

sorry to hear this. I purchased a set of G2 gears from 4wheel parts and had them installed locally a little over 9000 miles ago without any issues. are the motive gears 8620 heat treated steel?

I will say that I have not towed yet but I also installed a mag hytec diff cover for added fluid capacity.

anyway the install shop would contact Motive to discuss a possible warranty claim? it might carry more weight if the call came from them.
