    long thread about yukons over on pirate. From what I gather, yukon just buys gear sets in bulk (overstock or whatever) and repackages them. In theory this means that some gear sets might be good while others might be not so good. Seems in the real world experience though, that they are a good supplier. There seemed to be a LOT more "i run em, and they work great!" type messages than "i had em and they sucked!" messages over at pirate.

    Thanks.
    Just picked up a set. They were fairly cheap so I was wondering. Never used them before.

    I ran 'em in my old 10-bolts. Never gave me a problem. Randy's Ring & Pinion sells them, and they don't sell shabby parts. I am sure there is just as much a chance at getting a bad set from them as there is anyone else.

    The local guys at the diff shop were saying they are a lower quality gear. I beleive Randy's R&P is the US's #1 supplier of these. I've heard the biggest drawback is they are a noisy gear compared to Precision and others.

    Ive setup 6 sets of them. 2 D-60's, 2 14BFF's a 14 bolt Sf and a 10 bolt. They are a pain to setup, but they seem to be working ok. They arents noisy either. My set has about 10k miles on it and seems to be working fine.

    I setup a set of 4.56s in a Ford 9" that was in a Jeep. Ran them about 25000 miles with no problem and they were as quiet as factory gears.

    i have used many different brands, Yukon just seems to take
    a little longer to set up, why i dont know, but once set up
    they seem to work fine.
    for dana rear ends i like to use dana parts, they just seem to go together easier
