Austin Area shop for Regear

So I have a 2001 Wrangler TJ 6 cyl. Automatic Trans, D44 rear with 3.73 gears. I'm installing a 4.25" Lift kit on it. It's a 3" suspension and 1.25" body lift. I plan on running 33" tires. I think for optimal performance for both a mix of off-road and highway driving I need 4.56 gears. I would love to hear from the Jeepers who have had work done on their Jeeps by shops in the Austin/San Antonio area. What did you think about their reputation, work quality, and pricing. I can do some stuff on my jeep, but regearing is gonna be done by a shop. Thanks for any feedback on this.

I posted a similar question a couple of weeks ago. I got recommendations for Jeep Masters in Austin and TxPro 4x4 in Lampasas. I have an 01 also and have just about the same build in mind as you do. I just got it last November and plan to install a lift next month and then decided on whether or not to do tires and wheels or a regear first.

I know a former member who used Jones Jeep in Marble Falls for a re gear. He was very happy with them.

Jerry's Garage in Round Rock. Both the owner and Shop Manager are jeepers. They did my engine rebuild. I am sure they would be able to do a re-gear.

I have an 06 TJ with D44, 4" lift, standard 6 speed. I regeared to 4.56 to run 33's and am now running 35's. Best thing I ever did. Used Off Road Ready in Helotes, Tx. Highly recommend them.
