Low Range Gears

Marks4WD manufacture Low Range Gears to suit Mitsubishi, Nissan and Toyota 4WD's: Enhancing the vehicles off road performance and safety.

Vehicles Fitted With Larger Tyres

Vehicles fitted with larger tyres to enhance their off road performance are at the same time handicapped by this improvement as the increased tyre diameter reduces the engine braking on steep descents. The increased tyre diameter also increases the speed of the vehicle in all gears making steep ascents and rocky terrain difficult to traverse safely.

Automatic Vehicles 

Vehicles fitted with automatic transmissions have very poor engine braking, this is due to the 1st gear ratio being in the order of 2.7 to 3.5:1 and to compound this problem the torque converter can not be locked up in this gear. If you own an automatic 4WD vehicle and have taken it off road in a hilly area you would appreciate the improvement in safety and drivability that these gears offer. If you intend fitting or have fitted a GM engine and automatic transmission to your vehicle you should also consider fitting these transfer case gears to improve your engine braking and general off road performance and safety.

Vehicles Using Winches

When winching your vehicle you often need to give some assistance to the winch by driving the vehicle in 1st gear, however the STD overall ratio moves the vehicle much faster than the winch. This over speed of the vehicle can cause excessive loading on the winch and cable when the vehicle looses traction. The cable can also become crossed up causing premature wear and possible breakage. The lower speed achieved with the Gearmaster® gears means that you can better match the vehicle speed to the winch.

Gear Backlash Eliminator

Most of the Mitsubishi and Nissan vehicles are fitted with one backlash eliminator on the large end of the lay shaft this is to help prevent low speed gear chatter which is more commonly experienced in vehicles fitted with automatic transmissions. All of our Nissan and some Mitsubishi Gearmaster® gears are supplied with a new back lash eliminator which is designed to suit the new gear tooth profile.

Fitting

Depending on the ratio some of the transfer cases do require a small modification to fit the gears, the installation is relatively simple allowing the job to be undertaken by most mechanical work shops.
