New Nissan Gears from Rugged Rocks

Rugged Rocks Develops Three New Gears for Nissan H233B in Collaboration with Revolution Gear and Axle 

Fontana, Calif. – Rugged Rocks is exclusively offering three new gears manufactured by Revolution Gear & Axle for the Nissan H233B rear and H233B reverse fronts axles. Available gears include 5.13, 5.57 and 5.89 – all of which fit front and rear axles.

"Off-roaders have been asking for the 5.57 and 5.89 gears in the aftermarket for quite some time," said Founder and President of Rugged Rocks Steven Lutz. "Working closely with Revolution Gear & Axle, I was able to develop deeper gears for more low-end torque at a reasonable price point.” 

Lutz said although the 5.13 is currently offered in the aftermarket, Revolution Gear and Axle is able to get cost down for consumers. 

The gears fit the following Nissan vehicles and model years: 

• Pathfinder Rear: 1990-2004

• Hardbody Pickup Rear: 1990-1997

• Frontier Rear: 1998-2004

• Xterra Rear: 2000-2004

• Y60 & Y61 Patrol Front (reverse rotation) and Rear: 1990-Present 

These gears start at $264.95 and can be purchased exclusively through RuggedRocksOffroad.com. 

“The H233B is a very strong axle,” Lutz said. "However, because gears for the axle have been expensive in the past, I’ve seen people go through the trouble of changing out the whole axle to a weaker model just to have access to less expensive aftermarket parts.” 

Off-road drivers now have access to OEM gear alternatives without needing to swap out axles and sacrifice strength in order to use more affordable gear options. 

Rugged Rocks, LLC was established in 2006 by Steven Lutz. More information about the products available can be viewed at RuggedRocksOffroad.com
