Locking and Re-Gearing Thailand-Built M226 Differentials

The Thailand-built Nissans have a different version of the M226 rear axle than here in the U.S. The Thailand models have 12-ring gear bolts rather than 10. This makes things a little tricky when upgrading to a locker and re-gearing, but it’s not impossible. Rugged Rocks has the 12-bolt version of the locker available.

However, if you plan on re-gearing your axles to a deeper ratio, you will need to use a 10-ring gear bolt locker with the 10-ring gear bolt gears from Rugged Rocks. The 12-ring gear bolt gears in aftermarket ratios are not available. Visit https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1665 for more details

Beadlock Wheels: What they are and how they work

Beadlock wheels are type of wheel that clamps the bead of the tire to the wheel in order to keep it from coming off when aired down in high-stress situations. The device that clamps down on the tire bead is a ring that is bolted to the wheel. This ring applies pressure to the bead of the tire against the wheel.

With beadlock wheels, you can air down your tires on the trail much lower than what is recommended with a standard wheel. Beadlock wheels for your Nissan Truck for SUV can be found at https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=beadlock%20wheel
