    Any phx people here??? Where is the cheapest place to get my gears installed? The lowest in tucson ive checked is 150. I called 4wd supply and they wanted 175. Or does anyone like doing it so much they want to do it for fun?? /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Probably not, but worth the try. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Thanks!!!

    Brian Labarge (LaBarge on here) works at one of the desert rats. call around and get ahold of him. from what i have been told he knows his ring gears.

    personally i wouldn't go to desert rat, every time i go in there to check prices or to pick up a part they are a-holes (unless you know someone like Grant said) ive gone to Off-Road Unlimited (Broadway & Extension) and i also 4 Wheeler Supply (Washington St. in Phx. by the dog tracks) both shops have done excellent jobs and are great shops.

    I have had bad dealing with Deset Rat as well. I have met Brian and know many people who are happy with the shop in mesa. I would not worry about that shop. I know the manager and he is pretty cool, at least for a jeep guy /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    PS to brian and eric... no harm intended by the desert dork comment below, I like your shop.
    PS to the Desert Dorks near 19 ave & Peoria as well as the one on Cave Creek & Bell Rd...
    Get your friggin' act together!! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    That is all
