I had a friend help me that knew what he was doing at his place in trade for some a/c work I did for him.

|denisbaldwin||Congrats on the new gears. That's my next step as well. One axle done.. one more to go.|

I have over 600.00 in parts which includes all new seals and bearings.
I would not recommend someone doing it them selves unless they have someone helping them that knows what they are doing.
I can see someone charging $12-1400.00 to do the work correctly including parts.
It isn't something you can do in just a few hours

|Nickabis||I'm waiting to do this as well, gathering all my soa parts and that is on the list. Where have you got your gears and at what pricing? Trying to find the best deal.|

|Ryno_YJ||That is awful high to me. I would recommend researching a little and doing the work yourself. I have right at $500 on both my axles. It takes a lot of patience and a few specialty tools but it was well worth it.|

|jokerchief462||Saving $$$$ for the regear. I am happy to hear some success I was quoted $1400 for both front and rear. Until then I am the four banger who insists all wheelin is done the scenic way reaaly slow!!!! Thats just on asphalt getting to the trails.|

|Ryno_YJ||Regearing a 2.5 with big tires is the biggest bang for your buck mod you can do. Aside from my 8.8, that is my favorite thing I have ever done to my heep.|

4.88 gears installed in my 90 2.5 ltr.
Finally I got finished. It was more trouble than I thought it would be, but the end result is worth it. Anyone thinking about doing the swap I must advise that it is worth it.
My little 2.5 is no powerhouse by any means (although some say they are) but the addition of the gears have made a signifigant difference for a daily driver.
I am running 33's, and now with the 4.88's I can use 5th gear, and shift much lower. I didn't like running to 3,500+ rpms to safely keep up with traffic but that is what it took to get up to speed without getting run over sometimes.
I am very happy with the results although it cost me my 46 Willys in trade
