is 1500 to much to get upgraded gears on my 02 auto? i have 33" tires and the shop here want to charge that
I've never heard of this. My family was in the repair business for 56 years and the price they quoted was always the fair price, take it or leave it. Most people that left it came back a few weeks later needing the cheaper repair of mod redone.. I guess it's different with 4 wheel drive shops?? I know my dad did gears and the price he gave was always the price he would do it for, no less.Most shops will always start quoting a higher price than they're actually willing to do the job for. The shop that did mine for under $1100 routinely quotes $1500. They hope you'll bite at the first quote and not try to negotiate it lower but not many buy at that first price they quote.
Kind of like buying a car, they always quote a higher price up front & come down from there.
thats a good idea :thumb:Thats what i was quoted for going from 3.07s too 4.10 because id have to get new carriars, decided to hold off on it because of wanting to upgrade axles, you can get a 8.8 axle from east coast gear with 4.10s for around a thousand last i checked, and with the amount of cherokees up for parts on my local craigslist i've seen hp 30's with just about any gear ratio you want for a couple hundred plus the cost of getting brackets welded on and the mods your not going to be too much over 1500 for stronger axles with the 4.10 gear ratio that i think is optimal for our 33's and 3 speed auto
