    Hey man,
    Dont know if you remember me, but I talked to you about a year ago about a regear. Well, ran into some money problems and couldnt afford it, plus my computer crashed and I lost all my bookmarks and I couldnt remember where I talked to you from. Haha.
    Anyways, are you still doin regears? Id really like to get this done before something else comes up and I cant afford it again. Thanks man. If youre interested, let me know and Ill give you my Jeep info and we will go from there.

    my buddy is checkin on the specifics of precision gears cuz they have a 3 yr warranty, BUT, there's stipulations. like for the dana 30/35 axles they will not warranty broken parts if the tires run on them are bigger than 32". and everyone is runnin 33's all the time on them, but thats what all the manufacturers are saying. here's what we do, after the install, and our initial break in for the first few miles, we have you take it, and bring it back in 500 miles to change the fluids and re inspect everything. due to the nature of the beast when you are running lockers, the warranty on our labor and bearings is 6 months, and we're checkin into the warranty on the gears, yukon's warranty is 1 yr, but with all the fine print they basically don't warranty anything if you read it. if it is abused, competition, or off road and so on they will weasel out of the warranty, but who else would buy them. kinda dumb in my opinion. and obviously if something goes wrong and the pumpkin is full of mud or something its obviosly not covered due to misuse or lack of maintenance. unfortanetly its not like most things where i can say 3yr, 36k warranty, so you really have to consider who's doing the work. let me know what you think, and i'll get back to you with precision's warranty if its better.

    keep in mind you are exceeding the axles recomendations, and the dana 30/35 are likely gonna be a weak point once you lock them up, if you're gonna be doing some moderate wheeling. i've known guys with that set up that never broke a thing, and others that broke every time they wheeled, it all depends on who's behind the wheel, and more importantly the skinny pedal

    sounds good, and don't worry that's an important question. let me double check what it will be. there's obviously situations when using lockers and such that will fall under different categories, but anything that is a result of the install is obviously warrantied, and i'll double check how long. also look into true tracks warranty, cuz we can probably repair something for them if their components fail. so i will let you know tomorrow the details.

    think about a good time to schedule, so i can get this customer's el camino project off the lift, and make room for yours. talk to ya later.

    Hey thats cool. So 470 parts + 680 labor = 1150. Right? That sounds good to me. I have the truetracs coming in the mail and I should get them by next week. I only have 1 question and I hope you are not offended by it , but its pretty important. Do you offer any type of warranty on your work? Its not that I dont think you will do a great job, but anything can happen and I really dont want to have to drop another 1200-1300 on doing this again. Thanks man, hope to hear from you soon.

    sorry, thought you had the gears to. gear set runs $149 per axle, we should be able to do it in 1 day after the parts are in and we clear a spot. let me know.

    Hey thanks for getting back to me. That is a good price on the labor. I would also need the ring and pinion 4.88's too. what would that run me per axle? I am waiting on my truetracs to be shipped so I dont think I would get them until next week, so no hurry.
  7. jpdocdave
    hey man, the master kit is gonna run $85 per axle plus shipping, and labor on the install is gonna be $340 per axle. feel free to ask around on the forum, to make sure you're comforatable with who's doing the work. i'm an ase certified mechanic, lead tech/shop manager. i would actually have you bring it to my buddies shop i work nights at. he's in beach park, its called rock 4 x fabrication, here's his site: www.rock4xfabrication.com he does off road fabrication, machining, and installations. we are professionals, not driveway mechanics, and that is a really good price on labor for a professional install. let me know, and thanks for getting back to me.

    Alright, what would I be lookin at for 04 Sahara, 4.0, AT(4sp. w/ OD), 33's, want to go from 3.73's to 4.88's. I also have truetrac's front and rear that I would like installed. Will you supply RP/ install kit or would I need to get it on my own? Thanks.
