Anybody Install Gears in or Neer PA??

Looking for somebody to take apart both axels install 2 new 4:56 gears, the axels are currently running 3:10 to my knowledge, and if whoever installs the has a use for them can gladly have them for some labor. I also am looking at putting a rear locker in at the same time, thought this would probally be a good time . I am willing to pay for all parts, I have the gears, I dunno what else is needed, just let me know and I will glady provide all food, drinks and a monitary "gift" for whoever does it. we will keep it under the table

Truck is a 1994 Mazda B-4000 Basically a 1994 Ranger with the 4.0L V6, Everything is ford except hood, grille, steering wheel and decals. I would appreciate any help with this or a reccomendation to a good shop so I can get it done. Budget is always a bit tight so cheaper the better, but quality does matter and it always shows, an I am willing to pay for it. I have done several mods on my truck and would be willing to give anyone who helps as well as anybody free time of mine to help with one of their projects!!

So Please Help!

- Brian

You are currently running 3.73s or 4.10s, not 3.10s.

Hehe I had the same truck as you only with 4.10 gears. My recommendation to you is if you blow your hubs to replace them with manual ones. I blew mine in the chesepeake river and had them replaced to the stock ones and it cost over 600 bucks. And the shop that did it is a good friend so we didn't get hustled on it.

Are you looking to just change the ring gear/pinion and leave the current drivetrain alone otherwise?

Yep, I want to change the gears from the 3:27 to 4:56's and install 1 Electronic Locker, and 1 L/S Locker and call it done, the rest of the drive train will be left stock.
