    It is almost impossible to find 4.88 gears for the RD111...They require short gears. Almost all 4.88 gears you get now are made taller to fit the RD121 to be a more "universal" type fit. The gearing description for the lockers - like the 3.91+ for the RD111 or the 3.73- for the RD121 - is not completely accurate. The main gear manufacturers have just adapted the 3.91+ gears to fit the RD121 and stopped making the gears for the RD111. SEE ATTACHMENT OF SCREENCAP FROM ECGS'S WEBSITE. Both that are "$50" are made for the 3.73- carrier (locker)

    The one on the right is stock. The one on the left is what's supposed to be fitting in the exact same space (hint: it won't)

    If you make the same mistake that I did and are trying to source 4.88 gears, the gear part number from ECGS is T8CS-488R-NG. They are no longer made. Good luck...

    So if you want 4.88 gears and a front locker it can't happen, or do you have to order a specific arb locker? The 121 instead of the 111?

    Okay great to know. Just wanted to make sure I was reading that right.

    Edit: went through ops build and it explained it pretty loud and clear. Getting a little late apparently.:pccoffee:

    I don’t think it matters for 4.56. It was just for the 4.88’s in the front if I remember correctly from a year ago when I was searching this up.
