good gear shops

Curious if anyone has delt with any good shops around the area that can install gears. What my setup will be is 4.88s with ox lockers front and rear (dana 30 and Ford 8.8). I've been told to go to lenards but herd they were kinda spendy. I'm not trying to go cheap but I want to keep my options open, so if anyone on here knows of some good shops it would be greatly appreciated.

Talk to Pat https://www.facebook.com/pages/Acces...02817013094269

They just did a full gear up grade and locker install on my husbands YJ over the summer.

That doesn't sound too bad. Ya I've got gears lockers install kits. I was planning on doing it myself but after talking to people, setting up the pinion kinda scares me. If it was a trail only rig I would have no problem trying it, but the jeep gets driven on the roads every once in a while.

setting up your gears isnt to hard, but you need to know what your doing and have the tools to do it, setting gear lash and such, i would rather put my faith in someone i pay so if it goes bad its on them

Having proper tools is the key. I bought a clam shell bearing puller made my Yukon for $350. It lets you pull the bearings off with out damageing them. That think has save me a load of money. Combined that with a press and I was able to do both my friends XJ, both my powerwagon and YJ. If you dont know what to do and you dont have the tools let a shop take care of it. Nothing like blowing up a end cause your tryed to save afew bucks.

with the world of you tube and how to videos can be a great teacher, but it doesnt help you alot with actuallly doing it most of the time it gives you enough info to get in trouble, if you know what you are doing or have a friend that does do it at home, like banks said blowing up a rear end to save some cash will only cost you more
