2.94 gear swap for 3.36

I have the 2.94 gears and am want to swap it out with the big tow gears. Can I just replace the ring and pinion or am I going to have to purchase other parts?

I want to swap out the 3.36 for the 2.94. I guess I need to find someone who knows a thing or two. If anyone can point me to some resources I would appreciate it.

My local off road shop is going to swap them for me for 500 bucks. They did my last truck and it was perfect.

You mean they're just going to install the gears in your truck for $500? Wow, come on down here to Killeen and I can get it done for less than $200. I trust the guy because he has done them in proven 9 second cars.....gears are gears are gears, a swap or install is NOT that hard as long as lash and all of the other variables are known. Also, as long as Nissan crush sleeves are not priced like titanium either.

One of our sponsors, nissanparts247.com has several versions of Titan Ring and Pinion Sets:
http://www.nissanparts247.com/en_US/ under "Order the Parts you need"; 2004 Nissan Titan; Mechanical; rear driving axles. ~$285-$350. One of them states w/Limited Slip, but since the Titan uses ABLS, maybe this is actually the E-LOCK version?

I have changed the ring and pinion on several cars, all 1960s/70s GM, it is easy to do. I have found that if you use the same shims that are on the old pinion, the lash will be right. You still have to check it. This might not hod true for the Titan.

I would strongly recommend trading the entire axle. That way they will never know that you tampered with anything during the warranty period. I think that your drivetrain warranty goes out further than the "bumper-to-bumper" warranty and it covers your differential if you haven't altered it.
Since we all have the same bolt pattern and disc brakes I would swap the whole axle.

Galaxy Black 2004 Titan XE CC 4x4 w/ Off-Road Package, Preferred Package.
Mods: PRG Spacers, 17x9" Eagle 187s (+2mm offset) w/ 315 70-17 BFG All-Terrain KO tires, Stillen Diff Cover, Alpine Type-R components in the front, coax. in the rear w/ 50 x 4 Rockford Fosgate Amp, XM, Debadged, and Homemade RCA pre-outs on in-dash changer.

They will still know that I traded axles b/c the vin number shows no big tow right? Anyway they are not going to warranty my drivetrain after I put 37s on it?
