Time to look for a new guy unless you are including some lockers in that price...you should be looking at somwhere around half that.

Also, why are you only going to 4.10s? What is your overall plan with the jeep? Typically, it's not worth your time or money to only go to 4.10s. Practical regearing usually starts around 4.56 depending on the setup.

If you are dead set on 4.10s, consider picking up some junkyard axles with 4.10s already in them. Some 2.5L have 4.10s, or if you can find them...rubicons had 4.10s (and better axles than 'MOST' stock jeeps).

I paid a little under $1300 for my first regearing and $1087 for my last regear job when I pushed harder for a bigger discount. Many shops will quote unreasonably high prices on such jobs hoping you'll agree without pushing for a discount. And 3.73 to 4.10 is not much of a change of ratio for as much as the job costs, what size tires do you have? Also which engine, model year TJ, and what transmission?

high,

not knowing anything about your jeep... I would not pay to go from 3.73 to 4.11. a jump to 4.56 would be far better,

I pay here about 250 labor per axle.. so 500 labor and parts cost.. so figure around 1000-1200 ball park..

Alright well I didn't want to start another thread on this but figured id just search and learn like everyone says.
05 wrangler tj sport 4.0 litre
6 speed stick with 373 and stock everything pretty much , worn out 30 inch tires

Looking into dpg ome kit from dirk. Says fits 32 to 33 think I will go with 32 for extra clearance look but don't want the tires to look to small ?

Why I said 410 is just what I've read I really don't know what I need. Edit: my quote on 32x11.5x15 bfg all terrain kos were 204 a tire mounted and balanced. Is 15x8 rim the correct choice ?

If it were me, I wouldnt even bother regearing if you are only going to 32s. I ran 32s on 373 gears and a 5 speed and could barely tell the difference. Youve got an extra gear on me too .

If this guy has the setup to do gears, Id guess he should be able to knock both axles out in 6 hours. As far as parts are concerned, gears and master install kits would run you "roughly" 500-600 bucks for the axles depending on brands. So hes marking those up pretty good...because 5 or 6 quarts of gear oil and a tube of RTV (or even fancy gaskets) isn't gonna cost you 500 extra bucks .

If you are really wanting to go up gears, Id definitely do some more shopping for a new guy.

gear sets (front and rear together) with install kits on line for dana 30/44 $500 bucks... call another shop and get some prices..

what rear axle do you have? I would say go with the 33's.. 15x8 rim is fine backspacing of round 4.0 to 3.75 works well on 11.50 to 12.50 wide tire..

on a side note I ran 33's on 3.73's for a few years.. it was fine...

Yes would like new wheels too any black alloy recommendations ?

Also I read that people had a huge power loss just going up a couple tire sizes. Maybe I will try it out with stock gears at first. I do live in one of the flattest places on earth so climbing hills aren't an issue

Go with what you like

The most noticeable place gearing will play a factor is offroad at crawling speeds or at highway speeds. Around town you won't notice much. Regardless, in your case you probably wont notice much, if any, difference. Also, a jump from 373 to 410, wouldnt be too noticeable. Youve got the right idea though, go ahead an put the bigger tires on and drive it...then make your decision. Putting 32s or 33s on isnt going to keep your jeep from rolling haha.

$2000 sounds high, but a lot depends on where you are and what the going rates are there. I see you're in Canada, so I can't really say. I paid about $1500 P&L in Northern CA about 2 years ago, and they wouldn't deal. That seemed to be the going rate in all the shops in this area.

Mind if i ask which shop? Looking to regear at the end of summer, and the few i've tried locally seem pretty clueless about jeeps.
