    I seem to remember T-Roy and Shane74 and at least one other person mentioning that they knew of places locally to get regeared ...

    So... whatchu got? How much they charge? Whats thier phone number? I gotta get 4.10's in this truck, especially before I get it into the snow, mud and sand. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I believe Josh paid $300 per axle, gears and set up.
    I don't remember who it was that did them though.

    $300.00 per axle doesnt seem too bad...

    For less than $600 I have bought 2 axles (3/4 ton), both with 4.10 gearing (1 from you /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif) and am swapping them both to disc brakes.

    true, but I have rebuilt both my front and rear axles already and just need to regear them. Not to mention that I am fond of my 6-lug wheels (I know, I know, but I dont want steel wagon wheels) and want to keep them.

    Plus, I only run a 32" tire now and will be going to a whopping 33" tire when I get tires next so I dont need 3/4 or 1-ton gear. (which is why I sold the axle to you /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif)

    I'm not too sure about cheap, but Padden Drivetrain (on Columbia just west of I-205) treated me really good when I took my old Blazer there to do a ring and pinion and add a posi. I just stopped in there the other day and the same guy still works there. Check it out.
