For the Ballistic shave kit, you’ll need to machine the massive 10 1/2-inch ring gear down to 10.063 inches. We ordered our 5.38:1 gear set already machined from Ballistic, which saved us some machine work and downtime. Since this particular 14-bolt is being placed under a relatively lightweight Jeep Wrangler, we are not too concerned about any strength we may have lost from the machined gear.
