    Most guys I know have precision gears form Randy's Ring and Pinion. They havn't had any problems as of yet and some guys been running them for a few years now. I am running stock :( , but that is what I want to run. Somewhere like 4.56 up.

    Randy's were real helpful. Saved me some money too.
    They recommended Yukons for me.

    For a street rig...Precisions
    Offroad...Yukon's.

    Precision's are the quietest gears...for highway use...next to GM gears.

    Holy high price batman :eek1: . I got my Yukon's for $175 to my door.

    As for the question, precision are going to be the best made gears but they are also the most expensive. Yukon's are good strength for the money. I am running Yukons and havent had a problem yet.

    I voted Yukon. I have Yukon 5.13's, and have been impressed with the quality.

    I guess you fellows didn't read Jekbrowns post on where he got his gears. $300 bucks for both front and rear shipped from CCOR for Yukon 5.13's..

    Here is a link http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=141909

    I know when I need to order my gears I will get them from Bobby over at CCOR :D

    When buying rebuilding kits...be carefull of Yukon's kits...
    They advertize that Timken bearings are used...wrong...
    those dorks gave me Bower carrier bearings with Timken races...
    so I had to purchase 2 Timkens...to finish the job right.

    Precision has the best kits...with good shims to work with.
