I don't know any mechanics in the area, but I am happy to help if you want to do it yourself.

Is this your first time doing gears? I am about to re-gear mine, but that is one of the only things I have never done to a vehicle and all the warnings about how difficult it is are scaring me off attempting it myself.

I did my locker install so i am comfortable taking them in and out, My concern is getting the shimming correct. Please let me know how it goes. I would much rather save the 500 for the install.

I have to work until about 5-530, but I'd love to help out if you will still be working on it after that.

A couple pics from the Ol'skool run today... It was a blast. There were definitely some technical sections that were pretty challenging. I unfortunately didn't get pictures of the tough spots since I was trying not to destroy my jeep. I failed though, I put several dents in my rear driveshaft and scraped quite a bit of metal off it so it is not balanced anymore and will need to be replaced.
