    What's the going price to change a set of gears in the stock 10 bolt. Would love to go to a 3/4 or 1 ton set up, but I don't have the time or money for that now and these high gears are killing me with the 33s. Let alone the 35s I want to change to.
    P.S. Thanks to all the answers, this site is great.

    It depends on where you live i think, and who you know, i had them done here texas and it was 150 for the rear and 200 for the front, and its gone up to 275-325 in the past few months. if heard it can get quite expensive in cali.

    In Colorado, I have heard of quotes as high as $1,200 for the complete job, including new (not used) parts, labor, and new u-joints.
