    why regear?
    did it a year or so back, and spent more for the regear than the cost of a good used 14 b with the 4.10's already in, and i still have 10 bolts
    $175 gears and install kit
    $400 labor for regear
    $575 sub total
    $150 new hardend axle shafts
    $ 75 new bearings and seals
    $ 75 new brake pads and wheel cylinders
    $375 new lockrites
    $1175 per axle and i still have 10 bolts
    very nice 10 bolts, but 10 bolts just the same.
    "if i knew then what i know now........."
