    It depends on how many times you have to install/return them. :eek1: I've read several reports recently from people that found the pattern at one part of the ring gear didn't match the pattern at another part of the ring gear. It would seem that the quality control at the Yukon factory in India isn't as good as it should be. :doah:

    Yukon doesn't produce gears in india, yet anyhow.... they are repakaged from other vendors, mostly spicers...

    The Yukon gears are a good quality gear, from a reputable manufacturer. kind of a "top shelf" deal compared to the "value gear" line they also sell.

    That is a good price right now, those gears are back ordered by just about every vender.

    Yep, what he said. All Yukon gears are made to high standards in the US (although you don't know exactly which manufacturer will make the r&p you get). I have never had any problems with any of the sets I have installed.
