JFjeld 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.

Oldguy How is your collection of specialized tools coming?

wanderlust Per axle! I need to rethink what I do for a living. Actually this should be an interesting year for me.

Johnwbs 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.

I'd like to come 'help' and learn for myself. I have friends who have done it with no prior experience and their gears have been fine for years. Basically follow the directions, check and recheck everything and you'll be fine. Just need a few special tools and a lot of patience.

Let me know if you want help.

Full Spool If you do it yourself, who is going to warranty the work and parts?
