Off Road Drivetrain Parts & Transmission
The drivetrain is the nervous system of the vehicle. Getting the power sent down to each tire of a 4x4 is critical to keeping your momentum and control in the green. Whether it’s for repairs or upgrades, Off Road Warehouse is your go-to shop to get quality advice and expert care.
One area all off-roaders should look into is the differential. While several late-model Jeeps, trucks, and SUVs carry at least a limited-slip rear, having a locking differential is a considerable improvement. This is because the differential will lock both axles to each other in slippery situations (e.g. mud, snow, and sand), putting traction down and getting the vehicle moving again. Manufacturers like Yukon, ARB, and Eaton make both locking and limited-slip differentials for a wide array of vehicles.
Outside of the differential, customers might want to look into axle housings. Over time, housings can warp or separate and become unreliable. You can address this by either welding on an axle truss kit (JCR, Rough Country, TMR Customs, and more offer kits like these), or ordering entirely new housings (like those made by Currie). For the latter, both the Dana 44 and Ford 9-inch are trusted designs that have proven themselves over the years.
