    I am wanting to change the ring and pinion gears in the rear end of my 1946 Chevy pickup to 3:55 gears to give it more cruising drive ability. Does anyone know where I could get a set of these gears at a reasonable price ? Thank You, David

    If new Speedway. Used a salvage yard. This is probably the most common rear end gear made.

    Is it Patrick's or Langdon's that is selling NEW 3.55 gears for the early Chevrolet trucks?

    No one wants to buy from Patrick's.

    I put 3:55 gears in my 55 second series truck, great improvement over stock 3:90's They are made by Yukon Gear, should be able to order them from a distributor of that brand or call them directly. I don't remember where I bought them it has been a couple years.
    Jim Carter seems familiar.

    Has anyone ever found a set of 3.55 early truck gears in a salvage yard?
