IIRC - that's it. There were so-called "Alpine Gears" for the bus, but I believe that was a different ring and pinion ratio. NOT reduction gears. You could change the ring and pinion to change the final drive ratio. One of the reasons to install a reduction box setup is the lower gears for lower offroad speed. You can keep your cake or you can eat it. Can't have both. You could also take the reduction box setup out of the car and switch to a conventional swingaxle.

There are a few different gears, but VERY hard to find. I have a RGB setup in my baja, and it tops out at 55 MPH with 33" tires on it. Best bet is to do what mojaveracer said and change the ring and pinion and possibly a higher 4 gear. Contact Dons Bus Box www.donsbusbox.com and he can tell you what it would run.

Welcome to AZ Bajas from the Mojave Desert.

I have a Baja Bug friend in Ridgecrest and I'm not too far away...south of Edwards AFB. And I know another Baja guy who lives in North Edwards who goes by the user ID of 63Baja on SoCal Bajas and HiDesert Bajas. His 63 doesn't have reduction boxes though and is IRS. Since you're in SoCal, I suggest Jeff Fields Transaxle Engineering in the San Fernando Valley.

I'll send you a PM.

Check with Bob Kinnan who has a part-time VW shop in Ridgecrest. I'm not comfortable handing out someone else's personal contact info, so if you PM your info to me, I can forward it to Bob. He's a SoCal member who will host a run out of his shop in about a month.

SoCal Bajas: from the text box near the header on the home page of the Forum...
"If you are interested in becoming an official member, or just have questions, feel free to send a Private Message from this board to 57baja for details on how to get involved. "

1st step is to join yuku.

If you still have trouble, PM through this site.
