    Randy's Ring and Pinion. http://www.ringpinion.com/
    I bought a set of gears, locker, and bearings from them. They have fairly decent prices and great people to work with on the phone figuring out just what you want or need.

    You definitely need to go with Randy's ring and pinion. They are very helpful over the phone and will help you get exactly what you need. I purchased my front gears from them and they were great. www.ringpinion.com
