GoneMoab 2017 – The Premiere Nissan 4×4 Event

Another year of GoneMoab (Gathering of Nissan Enthusiasts) has come and gone. 2017 was one for the books which I’m sure will bring many people back in 2018, along with their friends, for 5 days of 4 wheeling on the rock of Moab, UT.

This event has grown over the years from just a few friends to now well over 200 Nissan enthusiasts. Even though the event has grown it still has that big family and friends feel, many of which have met through online Nissan message boards and Facebook groups. Moab is where many of them meet face to face for the first time during GoneMoab. You can also show up not knowing anyone and leave with having met a whole new group of friends. The kind of friends that joke, laugh, go 4 wheeling, are tech savvy and willing to lend a hand if needed. It’s never a dull moment around this crowd. It’s not just about the trails, but also about the people, the evening dinners / BBQs, and of course raffle night.

During this event every year, there are tons of pictures and video taken which get posted on the goneMoab facebook group located here:

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

Rugged Rocks Develops Three New Gears for Nissan H233B in Collaboration with Revolution Gear & 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.
