    Has anybody used ring and pinions from Genuine Gear and what is the quality? 4WPW sells them. I know 4WPW service sucks but if I can get a decent deal on R&P's I would be willing to wait a month or two for the correct items to be shipped.

    If you didn't built it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    FYI, if its the gears that are coming from Italy, or France, you will need to use that Lifetime Warrenty.
    If you know what Lapping is maybe you can translate it for those guy's over the pond.
    Buyer be ware, and in this case very aware !
    Hope this helps.

    I guess you get what you pay for. They were offering them about $150 bucks less for front and rear compared to everyone else. I'll spend the few extra $$ and have the piece of mind. Thanks

    I like Precision Gear or Aubrun personally... yes you get what you pay for... samething w/ axle shafts and other parts too. Also I don't think anyone should give a buck to those cheat'n jerkoffs at 4WPW. I'd rather drive a Ford then buy from them!
