Need to know if im being takin
 
I have a yj with 3:55 gears and want to trade to 4:10 I was just quoted two days to do this work. 700.00 dollars worth of labor because he knows what he is doin I have a d-35 rear and d-30 front. Plus 450 to 480 for the gears am I being jipped?

350 per axle is not bad for labor. you might be able to save a little on the gears if you buy them your self and the install kit but thats right around the cost. I would honestly head down to the nearest junk yard and pull a set of axle from a 4 banger YJ. though if your going to regear go to 4:56. 4:10s are pointless to spend money on if you already have 3:55s

Going from a 3.55 gear ratio to a 4.10 gear ratio isn't going to really do much for you. Gears all cost roughly the same, so go with a slightly steeper gear (4.56) if you're wanting more practicality out of your Jeep. I'm assuming you've lifted it or plan on lifting it and adding larger tires?

What size tires are you running?

i have a 5" lift 33" mudders, sye,. just looking for better low end power + actually having a 5th gear on highway. what do u think i got a friend who said he'll do the work i just need to get the gears now. and maybe limited slip rear too. i dont hit the trails extremely hard but like to trail ride a little and love speed what do u think. sound like a good setup? im want selectable lockers but not in my budget right now so ill beat my d35 till it dies or i have the cash to step up to my 8.8 or 9 and sell the d35 with LS sounds good what r ur opinons

Definitely go with 4.56 gears. Your smart going with an LSD as a full locker with speed and 33+ tires will kill a d35 fast. That price sounds about right too, upper side but still right.
