good axle shops in NE IL/NW IN ?
come tax refund time (screw you, BO!) I'm going to take the plunge here with my refund check and get a Ford 8.8 and upgrade my fronts as well...anyone know any good axle shops in the greater Chicago area (to inlude NW Indiana...) ? What would people think is a "reasonable" price for the whole package?

In case anyone cares, I'd like to run 4.56s. That's doable in an 8.8 - right?

why not 4.88?

judging by the charts on here and elsewhere; 4.56s just seemed like the right gear for as big as I'll ever run (max of 33-35s w/ a 4.0)

Call Tony at Vehicle Performance Solutions in Lake in the Hills.
He knows Jeeps and all types of 4x4's.

I have 33's and 4:56 gears and it's a perfect combo.
