hey thanks alot guys for all of the compliments on the Ranger!! this friday is my appointment at Randy's Ring and Pinion for my gear swap, I'm pretty excited about that! Got my appointment in, and all the money together. Now, just gotta make up my mind between now and next friday. 4.56, or 4.88. I KEEP on going back and forth about it. Either one, I know would be miles ahead of where i am now with the 3.73

Tomorrow at 8am my truck is getting geared at Randy's. I got a quote for roughly $1800. They can only give you a estimate over the phone, given that there could be other things needing replaced once they bust open the diffs. For the Yukon 4.88, Master Install Kits, Oil, Seals.. I believe it was around 500 for front and rear just in parts, and he said he could for sure tell me that the labor for the job was around 950. I have a torn CV Boot as well, I got some reman ones from O' Reilly today, they are going to put the new half shafts in at no extra labor charge, since they will already have the diff out on the work bench. It's pretty expensive, but 3.73 with my 35's is REALLY crappy. I think Randy's does really good work, and i think they even have some sort of warranty that comes with their work. I'm pretty excited to have it done, I should be able to pick it up tomorrow evening and check it out.

Got mine done for under 700 and I used Yukons. BUT...that was using hardcore shopping techniques lol. General costs f&r install + gears is in the 1000-1500 range. I even had a quote for 2k. LOL

Ha ha, Yeah, I thought about looking around, i called up 4 Wheel Parts once and asked them, they said $1500. I have gotten a few quotes from Randy's and all of the times, they seem to change abit, I had $1600, and now it's $1800. I DO KNOW that if i brought in loose axles, it would have saved 100 for the rear and 200 for the front BUT while i have the money, i might as well just get it done. I'd trust Randy's Ring and Pinion over 4 Wheel Parts for just about anything ,especially gear swaps.. anyday.

My friend got 4.88's put in a rear end he brought in loose for his old dodge at Randy's, they did the swap, went in and freshened it all up. $800 out the door. I imagine i'll be driving out of there with $1700-$1900 less in my bank account, but it'll feel good to be properly geared. I am just using my tax return to pay for the work in full. So, I quess it's about a good timing for it all knowing that i came into that extra money from taxes just in time. At least i'll have some peice of mind, I have to bury the foot pedal with the 3.73s and 35's.. and it tries to shift all weird like it doesn't know what the **** is going on.. It's pretty bad.

Sourcing parts online (completeoffroad.com)(f&r yukons w/ rear install kit and notched pin for under 400 shipped)

Talking to local off road shops and finding out where they get their axle and gear work done. Found a local guy like a mile from my house who does axle work for a local shop...150 an axle loose. No warranty claims or failures in 12 years. I'd say that's pretty good!

Well, I'm officially geared. AND i must say, it's the BEST thing i've done for my truck so far! I can't believe how much nicer it is to drive a properly geared rig. There's no more burrying my foot deep into the gas pedal to get the thing going now, it's pretty sweet. They did Yukon 4.88's front and rear, all new bearings and seals, i needed a new rear yoke, and they rebuilt my Posi in the rear. I drove out of there just over 2 thousand dollars BUT it's worth it, and the truck feels alot more comfortable now.

lets just hope it doesn't have the same fate... I liked my 4.88s, but probably would have liked 4.56s more.
