Regear?
 
Hey guys I'm upgrading my D30 and D44 gears to 4.56 you know anyone that could do a regear in the Aurora area? Just wondering since I have no idea how to do it or have the tools haha thanks!

Mine is currently in the shop for a regear, and I pick it up tomorrow morning. I went with CrawlerTech in Commerce City, after getting several recommendations from fellow jeepers that said Josh's work is great. So far, dealing with him has been easy and he's answered all my questions and made recommendations based on what I wanted. he's alo reasonably priced and actually had the best price out of the shops that I talked to.

What gearing did you pick Chuck?

chuckr 04-14-2013 07:21 PM

I went with 5.13

Justin04Lj 04-14-2013 07:23 PM

chuckr 04-14-2013 07:30 PM

I don't think so....I know, famous last words, but....I like how the jeep sits with the 35's and they'll get me everywhere I want to go.....

Justin04Lj 04-14-2013 07:43 PM

Aight I'll check them out! How much was it?

It came to $1650 for parts and labor

How much for labor? Haha sorry I didn't clarify but already got the gears I just need someone to put them in

chuckr 04-14-2013 10:07 PM

I think it was about $1000

That's pretty standard across the board for a shop. There is a guy just north of Denver that does it pretty cheap. And backcountry from the forum had a guy do his for like 500 bucks I think. If you try craigslist you can find guys making some scratch on the side willing to do it cheaper. but you risk peace of mind. I did a ton of research before deciding to do it myself. I just kept thinking of what I could buy for the price of labor (rcv shafts)

There's just so much involved with doing it yourself that I can see why its worth it most times to pay someone else to do it. Plus the tools.
How did it turn out for you Jager?

I can definitely say josh as crawlertech stands behind his work! Awesome warranty also! Gears are not something you want to go cheap on...

Well its still in my garage lol if that says anything. But the front wasn't too bad because the locker I was putting in just replaced the spider gears. the backlash is the part that was a bit overwhelming at first. A stupid mistake on my arb has caused a delay. nothing major, just have to pull the carrier again and make a small change. I will say multiple times I was like, "I know exactly why people pay to get this done." That said, you can rent the tools to get it done and if you have the time to have the vehicle down for a bit it's a good learning experience and confidence builder. Just frustrating. I also had a good friend offering advice and helping along the way. That was invaluable

Well... thanks for making the tough choice for me! Looks like when I get to it (if I ever do), ill be outsourcing lol.
I would like to learn it someday. I can do damn well everything else but the gearing parts always tend to get me leery.
