If you have a lot of tools and mechanically include I have a link to how to set up gears. I'm sure if you studied it, you could do the gears yourself. I may try it myself

Not recommended, even some of the best
techs on here have their gears done by a professional. Labor intensive and that is why having them done ain't cheap

I know it's very precise but with a little guidance and patients I think I could do it with the proper tools. I wouldn't install the axle if the preload and backlash wasn't perfect

There is some pretty complete write ups on the Internet. I was just talking to a friend of my cousin. He is a mechanic but he said, it's not as bad as people put it out to be. Just takes, knowing what to do and patience

Yea, and I wouldn't mind spending a whole week to get the gears just right(patients). The 2 write ups i found both said it's not as bad as you think with the proper tools

I had a buddy who neutral dropped at 2500-3000 RPM in a 85 Caprice Classic back in the 90s. It went "thunk" and we rolled backwards. Tiny pieces of gear all over. It must have been that weak 8.5" Chevy rear....

I am going to regear my Jeep very soon. I have confidence that given good instructions and purchasing the required tools I will be successful. Hearing what some have to say this seems like the ultimate DIY challenge!

Honestly I wouldn't know, I had a shop fix mine, they were able to put in a new hardened forged cross pin, the first shop that did my gear swap just ground down my factory pin to make it fit and that's why it broke. Luckily I didn't mess anything else up, I was still able to drive with it clicking so it was about a week before I took it to get looked at.

That sounds almost like what mine did, I only heard it clicking when coasting or stopping, when I hit the gas I couldn't hear it. Might want to get it to a shop really soon and have it checked out, you still might be able to salvage it instead of having to buy all new parts.

Not sure on your choice. I kinda wish something would give on mine so I can justify the cost of a regear

My step dad and I did my gears with trutracs front and rear within a weekend. I got my gears from randy's ring and pinion. I got them for about 250 a pop and 600 for each trutrac. I'd give them a try.

I had to do the rear after some odd ticking sound was coming from.
