    I'm getting gears soon and i was wondering who makes the strongest, most reliable gear sets. I'm hearing good thing about Yukon but its hard to see through the hype in the magazines some times. I dont mind spending extra money on gears if it gets me a superior product. Any first hand info would be great, O and this will be for a 10b/12b, and mabey a 60/14ff to.

    I'd say Yukons or Superiors, that's what I'd buy.

    I order Yukons last week. The guy who is installing them has had great things to say about them - easy setup, quiet break-in, etc.

    supreriors are probably better... but from what I have seen, gear tech isn't rocket science. Most gear makers have it figured out. If I was a professional driver and my livelyhood depended on it I might spring the extra $ for the superiors. Assuming your 4x4 hobby isn't that big a part of your well being, Yukons should work fine... and save you some coin too.
