Glendale/Burbank Area Gear shops!

Hey guys! Im looking to get my gears changed from 3.73 to 4.88, and Im wondering if there are any GOOD shops near my area.

I was thinking of heading out to JP1, but its an 1 1/2 hour drive, if anyone knows any good offroad shops near me that would be great!

I was looking at them, I read some reviews on their place and it kind of scared me away .

I called 4WP thats like 10 minutes from me and they quoted me $700 for one axle, I called another 4WP in LA area and they quoted me $850, he told me labor was $400, which seems a bit steep.

Check out four wheels unlimited in north hills they do good work. Owners name is Ed. He's a very nice guy and prices are quite reasonable.

Im mechanically inclinded but I haven't learned how to put together a differential using the right tools. I would love to learn, but I don't want to learn on my DD

I called Offroad Unlimited in burbank. They quoted me $1200 FOR ONE AXLE. Its safe the reviews on that place is pretty accurate.

There is a place on Sierra HWY right near where the 5 and 14 overpasses are in what I think is considered Sylmar or Santa Clarita. I, for the life of me, can't remember the name. But he is good and affordable. Specializes in Jeeps. If I think of the name I'll let you know. You might be able to google map it and find it that way.

Quotes I got so far

4WheelParts- ~$700
OffroadUnlimited- $1200 (Burbank one closed down)
HighGroundFab- ~$800
RWKHausSupply- $620
4WheelSpecialitesUnlimited- $650

So I think its a choice between, RWK Haus and 4WSU. Both have reasonable prices and are not too far away. Except I can't find where RWK is located.


EDIT: Also these prices are for one axle gear change.

^^^ I believe Rwk Haus is based out of the Anaheim Hills/Yorba Linda area & works out of his house if I'm not mistaken

These are prices for Gears + Master Install Kit + Labor

Also keep in mind, these are prices for ONE AXLE ONLY

Just picked up the Jeep from a offroad shop in Burbank called World Famous 4x4. My neighbor works there and gave me their card, I was quoted $700 and decided to take it to them since its really close to me. Great bunch of guys with a pretty big shop with all kinds of 4x4 trucks being modified.

Thanks everyone for suggesting shops nearby!
