If you're interested in coming up north a bit, my neighbor in Firestone does gears. You supply gears/rebuild kit of your choice, but from what I understand, his labor is very reasonable. I think you'd definitely save a bit from the quotes you were throwing out. He's a fellow Jeep owner and is a member of COJeeps Forums.
If you're interested, PM me and I can give you his info.
Personally, I do nearly everything I can to my Jeep, but when it comes to gears, I don't have the patience or precision. I lucked out in buying regeared axles.

Should've been more specific that's 600-850 per axle. So with the cost of the labor Im not too concerned with the benefit of a warranty. Since most of them only cover normal wear and tear. Which, lets be honest most of us dont anything that would be considered "normal wear and tear" in our Jeeps.
But I'll take any help I can get.

Let me know if you want help.

Once taxes come in I plan on regearing to 4.88's with a complete overhaul kit. Just wondering if anyone in the springs area has any experience with installing them and would be willing to help out. I've called a couple shops around here and it's looking to cost 650-800 for them to do it. Never done it before and would like to save as much as possible for other mods. From what I've read it seems simple enough, i'm pretty capable with a wrench Id just like some experienced help. Thanks,
