    Does anyone on here know of a company that might sell a kit with everything you would need to rebuild a rear axle? I am looking for one that might include the bearings, gears and seals - or am I going to have to purchase all I need seperately?
    Looking to rebuild a 10 bolt 3.73. How much (approx) would I be looking at price wise? Thanks.

    About the same cost as finding a 14 bolt to bolt in.

    You know, I was thinking about that. I do some pulling with it. Would it be wise to step up vs. rebuilding?

    yeah a diff rebuild kit is gonna run you around $100 + $250 or so for the install and resetting the gears for the differential alone.

    if you are thrifty enough you can find a pair of 3/4 ton axles for the same price and possibly 4.10 gears.

    edit: what is your setup and what do you do with it? future plans?

    You would definitely benefit from a stronger axle and a better ratio.
