Too late now, but how much did you pay? Complete Off-Road sells the complete kits with Yukon gears and master install kit using Timken parts for $258.

Yea it is, I looked at that site when i had the 7.5.Didnt even think about them when i ordered gears for the 8.8.Everywhere else i looked for yukon's 4.56's they ran around $280 for just gears.

I did saved money on my tuner from Lmperformance should be here monday.

Setting up a gearset is not for the shadetree mechanic or the DIY guys.

Hell, I'm a mechanic and I refuse to do them on anything but my own vehicles. That way if I **** up, nobody but myself is hassling me.

Personally I prefer Ford gearsets, I have heard too many horror stories about the cheap aftermarket makers' sets chunking themselves due to poorly heat-treated low-quality steel in the castings. I don't think Ford makes gearsets over 4.10 though, so C'est la vie!

Ford makes some gears i house just need to look at the part number

M at the end of the part number=Motive
A at the end=Visteon
No letter=Ford(like mine)
They also have a new vendor with a N not sure who makes those

If I re-geared I would either do Motive or Yukon personally. I like Yukon the best but if I found Motives for a good deal I would be ok with them.

Great deal, that's why I always check here before buy anything that I need to "shop around" for. You never know when you might miss some random sight that has a crazy good deal.
