    How hard is it to install gears. I am planning on installing 4.56 gears in my 10bolt. I went to 4wheelparts the other day cause i don't know of any other shop that installs gear around my area, and they charge around 300. So i was wondering if I would be able to do it myself.

    it is deffinately do able, ASLONG as you have access to a press, a secure vice, torque wrench, a big azz cheater bar, and a dial indicator.

    an impact helps alolt too on the ring gear bolts.
