Re-gearing recommendations

97 tj 5 suspension lift 35 bfgs 4.56 gears (rear)
Its my daily driver that has had the rear end already re geared. I am going to re gear the front to match. I know the saying ,you get what you pay for. My question is if I am only going to be off road a hand full of times do the pros (you guys) think I need to drop a lot of cash on the best brand or will a cheap ebay special hold up. Again its front only and off road occationally.
Also, I found a resonably priced brand called Motive Gears are they good quality or will they crap out?
Thanks guys in advance.

It's my understanding that the gears are the least expensive factor in regearing... If in fact that is the case, I'd go for a quality gear, so that you don't pay to have it done again after the first set craps out. I have no knowledge of the gears you mentioned, and can't comment about them. You know not to engage 4WD till you get the front geared to match, right?

Since your front axle gears are always turning unless you added lock-out hubs, I'd put good OEM-quality gears in front and rear, and not cheap eBay gears. Most of the gear brands advertised in the off-road magazines would fall in the No Thanks category...

I would go with the OEM or Superior Axle and Gear. Heard good things about Superior brand. Good luck!
