Any 4x4 shop will only be as good as their ring & pinion gear guy is. If their R&P guy is experienced and has a good reputation, go for it. My only caution is that in my personal opinion, 4WP usually overcharges to do jobs like that. If you're only having a basic ring & pinion gear installation and they want more than $1300-1400 at the most, pass or insist on a better price before you sign. My first R&P cost me just over $1300 and my last one when I negotiated harder was just under $1100 with all parts, labor, and tax included. And that was using major brand parts, not the cheaper Genuine Gear or G2 house gear brand that 4WP pushes.
Got my gears, locker and install kit yesterday. Randy's ring and pinion. Can't wait to have it installed. I have a buddy at work that also has his own shop on the side and he is going to install it for me.
Got the gears installed, everything is good but my buddy said that the front drive shaft was very tight, as in it needs shortened. He said that would probably reduce or eliminate the vibration that I have. I have noticed that it does come from the front and not the rear like everyone else experiences. What do you all recommend.
