    Expect to spend around $150-ish, per axle, to get the gears swapped. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    most shops around me charge 100-125 for rear, and 225-250 front. + any fluids, parts or whatever.

    That sounds about right for labor and parts.

    I bought all new gears and Detroit Lockers for a D60 and 14FF once. All those parts costed around $1200. So another $300 for labor isnt bad here for that total.

    the only place out here to even atempt such work on my monster said $400 for labor, per axel,on 10 bolts. and he also dosent recomend changing gears other than factory becouse of gears in trans-case. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif so Iam just going to get some 3/4ton axles and swap them myself /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
