    I am looking to have someone install my new gears for the front and rear in either the provo area or Salt Lake City area or somewhere in between. I am a student and trying to live on the cheap - but I won't do it myself because this is the only car my wife and I have (so if it takes a few days, that would be a problem :doah:). I also have no place to work on it cause we are not allowed to take cars apart in our parking lot.

    Anybody got a cheap way to do this :confused: ?

    Thanks!

    Rocklogic $$$

    Rocklogic turned out to be a let down :( . They wanted $650 just for the install. I have called around to places and had quotes as low as $450+tax and as high as $1400 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :screwy: (I almost laughed at that guy and asked him what he does that everyone else doesn't "...uh... well we install new bearings and all that stuff...," riiiiight). I know of one guy who is a mechanic but does a little moonlighting on the side - and he said it would probably be $360, but he just broke his finger and can't do it for another week at least.

    This is getting really annoying.

    That shop in Logan might be Mount Logan Offroad.

    Yeah, I read that on RME.

    Also on RME I came across some 4.56 D70 and D60 axles out of a chevy dually in spanish fork for $550, and I picked them up last night. I figured that by the time I get the gears installed into my 1/2 ton stuff, I will be out of pocket close to a grand, and still have 1/2 ton stuff that I couldn't sell for much if I ever decided to change. With the new 1-ton's I can go through them while they are out of the truck and then just slap them in there when I am ready. As a bonus, I get to do it all myself - no expensive labor involved. Hooray for 1-ton's!

    Thanks for everyone's input, but I think this one is taken care of (for now at least)

    hahah

    glad that worked out for you. I am a huge fan of one-ton stuff, but then... the K5 is the smallest of my trucks now... so it kind of makes.. sense.
