What are you talking about?
we have for years.. It can use the gears out of a Dodge Viper, or Jeep Grand Cherokee or.. just the ones they make for the M226.
the only m226's that cant use the gears are the titan's.... only the newer model ones with the the higher spline count. Someone else can confirm the years but i want to say 08+
Doesn't matter. Ring and Pinion doesn't interface with the axles. the carrier/spider gear dose.I know my 08 4 x 2 frontier, m226, the gears fit fine with a companion flange swap.

...Are what confused me. I thought the gears were only built for the older axles with the 2 spider gears (the fewer, I thought the newer ones had an increase to keep them from coming apart.) I also thought that the rears in the Titans and the Frontier were the same spline count, just shorter (figured Nissan would do that to save money instead of having two different sets.)Doesn't matter. Ring and Pinion doesn't interface with the axles. the carrier/spider gear dose.
gears have nothing to do with spline count as mustard said , only lockers , there is a difference on the pinion spline count but that only affects the pinion flange( the piece the driveshaft bolts to )...Are what confused me.

All that plus the page on Rugged Rocks only mentions 2005-2007 for the Frontier M226 rear gears.
Superior – 4.10 M226 (D44 Variant) Rear Ring & Pinion Differential Gears – 2005 – 2007 Nissan Frontier at Rugged Rocks Off Road
But 4x4parts has this listed...
I apologize for the M205 thread jack.
Yes, that helps quite a bit.
I don't know if this helps but what you are changing is the Ring and Pinion. The axles slide in to the side gears. So your axle spline count only effects the side gears.
this what the spline of your axles look like.
this isn't a m226 but it might help see what it all looks liek together
You are officially out of the loop. Look for the other thread where it was reported that the est delivery date is 2020 since their china supplier is playing games and etc....
