East Hartford. I have pics in my profile but I'll work on creating that Photobucket or whatever account so I can attach URL's. I have a seafoam video too that's worth sharing.

I e-mailed them and was given an estimate of $850 for labor (about 10 hours for front and rear), and their suggestion was to buy the gears and everything else myself.

They also mentioned having a jeep go through recently for $1500 out the door with the owner purchasing the gears.

You'd need the carrier as well. axel shafts if you plan on going bigger than 33" on a d35... unless your lucky and already have a d44. IMO, I'm sure people will say put them in while your there.

I believe for the d35, there are two different sized carriers one for 3.73 and down and one for over 3.73, or it might be under 3.73 and 3.73 and up. I'm not sure, but I know there are two different ones.

So damn expensive. I'd rather find axles from salvage and have them installed, problem, I don't know anybody that does that stuff around here, and also no space. I mean would be nice to pick away and do it myself but just can't be done :sadface:

Hey Everyone. Just joined the Forum. I have an 04 Rubicon that I've been modding when the funds allow. I live in East Windsor and work in South Windsor. I'm sure I've seen a few of you guys around.

I don't want to be too specific about where to find my Jeep parked all day. You never know who may be reading the forums. I'm within a couple miles of Lena's restaurant on rt5

haha, right?! i just got it, so the last few owners must've been using 87 gas the whole time. there wasn't a gas cap either, so i'm sure waters gotten in there; i just did a bottle of dry gas today to try to get it out. sidenote-two fill-ups of 93: 15.4 mpg's and 15.3 mpg's so far. the 2nd guy in the vid started me on this (use 87 with a capful or two of acetone in place of 93) comments?
