They don't pay for mods to their CLIENT'S vehicles; they are responsible for replacing whatever was damaged BY their client if their client was at fault.

It's a bit on the steep side, but not all that much. A super clean manual LJ with quality parts, no rust, and less than 100k miles could easily go for $20k.

Divide the number of teeth on the ring gear by the number of teeth on the pinion gear to get the ratio. Anything that close is effectively the same. The 4.10/4.11 probably comes from a different...
