Seriously it is so nice to stop looking at the tach. No more "what just happened to my power" or "why am I running at 1100 RPMs?". The more I tried to ignore it the more I noticed it.
I can just take the top down and enjoy the ride (again).

4.56s cost me MPH. But I re-geared for oomph, not MPG.

I hope that was for parts too! Ask and see what JUST the labor would run. We have this:
Yukon Gear & Axle
Yukon front and rear gear kits. You can do the Master (which we recommend) for $549.99 shipped. That is for BOTH the front and rear axle! In the front though, you will need a new carrier since you are running 3.21's though. It is just $125.00 for the carrier.
See what you think. That might really help out on the pricing.

|mjpjr45||I had my 4.10s installed a couple of months ago. I used my local mechanic and it costs me right at $1100, for both front and rear. I supplied, the gears, Trutracs, rebuild kits and even brought the gear oil.|

Worth every penny.
(Easy for me to say since I only paid for parts LOL).

I would think that 2 hours labor (for each) is fair for a shop that is experienced at this. That means a person experienced and skilled at properly installing and setting up a ring and pinion, working with the right tools for the job and actually working for the full 4 hours charged.
That's going to run you a ballpark number of $400 plus/minus depending on their shop rate for labor. I haven't personally priced the parts cost but someone said around $600 so if you can have it done for $1000/$1100 that would be a fair price.
The place that has the $999 deal sounds like somebody who does this routinely and knows what it takes to knock it out.
A shop that would charge you $1600 ea for this job should be prosecuted for larceny.
And... the worst thing you could do is have a dealer do it because besides paying double what you should, they likely will not get the gears set right and then you'll be dealing with that down the road.

|hbgirl||I was quoted $1800 for parts/install for an upgrade from 3.73's to 4.56's. I'm still on the fence!|
|06-12-2013 02:21 PM|
|Rubi513||I paid 1500|

|msubrave||About how many hours should it take an experienced shop to finish the job?|

|TheDesertOutlaw||I have a friend who paid ~$600 for parts and ~$300 for labor (front and rear). He lives in Tijuana, Mexico where he got the work done.|

|JeepHerz||Quoted $999-$1500. But throw in a locker or others goodies and it goes up from there. But if you're not in an area with a decent number of shops (ie. competition) I can see how it could easily go up.|

People quote on here any wheres from 1200 to 2500 normally. Those quotes are extremely high IMO
I got mine for 1500 but it all depends on the area you live and the shops. I usually see off road shops being more reasonable on price for the most part.

It was a special they extended over the winter. Not sure who I talked to but he jokingly said to grab a hotel next door since I'm from CT.

Shop in NJ was running a special for $999. I would be leery at this price but doing research, the shop happened to very popular and posted on JKO.[/QUOTE]
That's Globex, And they rock. Any time I need something done, that's the only place I go. I know they recently expanded their shop too. Great guys there!

Pricing is based on location. I was quoted $2200 before taxes here in CT.

Typical is 600 retail for parts. I I have seen $550 shipped with full install rebuild kit. That comes with crush sleeve and bearings.
Labour is typically 600. So if you can get $1200 range your doing ok.
Yes it can be done at home. You never know you might regear it again so being taught how is priceless.

I have an 09 Wrangler with a manual tranny, I have 35's and 3.21 gears. I have looked into getting regeared but I have been quoted at 2800-3000 bucks which is twice what I have seen on this fourm. Just wondering if why this could be.
