yo i've looked around online but honestly i cant find much about our wranglers.. no meets or anything locally so we're sort of screwed here in chicago area.. but anyways.. i like the bumper. So far the powercoating has been holding up well but yet i havent taken it out and beaten it up hard besides taking down few limbs, and some signs.. I would like to get a rear bumper but i just bought another toy to waste money on so.. sort of hard choosing between the 2.
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 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.
