Thank you! I'll give them a call.
Finally found a shop here in Missouri. Dropping it off this week. They are pricy. 3300. But this is the only place I found on the east side of the state. Dealer wants 4500 and only to 4:10.
I was thinking 4:56 but after reading this forum I’m thinking 4:88. Running stock tires and towing a 11k 5th wheel soon. Plan on moving the trailer to and from the south snowbirding.
I am with you the shop i found was 3200 but doing more research i think i might go with 4.88 or 5.13 now lol
See what the break down is on parts and labor costs.
Typical labor cost for regearing should only be $375-$475 per axle.
I know the newer parts are priceier than the old stuff. My ‘99 1/2 ton was $1500 to go from 3.55 to 4.10, that included gear sets, install kits, front carrier, & oil.
Also see if the shop will let you supply the parts as well. Some do some don’t.
Ask the shop to take a backlash reading for each old gear set, then ask for the old parts. Used gear sets always sell, but it’s nice to know what B/L they were at to reset them to.
This is the best gear calculator hands down.
Just the newer stuff, you need to know each gears ratio.
Try Grimmjeeper. I prefer it, because you can compare 2 different setups, side by side.
I stand corrected, that’s a great one.
Alligator Performance has both gear kits & installs for $1325. You should be out the door with installation for another $1k.
$3k plus is insane.
Is there a way to tell what gear ratio my rearend has without pulling the cover?
