Makes that much more thankful that I have a friend that owns a shop and won't screw me over.

Thank you for sharing. While I am sorry to hear about your experience it is good to know where I will be going!

I thought I heard Hillside charges a bit more then others for gears as well

have you guys found a shop here in town that you trust? I used High country a few times but i thought they were on the high side, that being said you usually get what you pay for and they have been around forever

I want to make a clarification:
I DO NOT blame Hillside for my vibration. My gears were installed perfectly as far as I can tell. My issue was the lack of a plan to isolate the cause of, and to fix, my vibration once things were spinning faster from the new gears.

Additionally:
I have heard from several people (including one whose opinion I value greatly) that my situation is out of character for Hillside. You do not get this kind of following without doing something right. Perhaps there was a miscommunication between me and Hillside...

I probably should of just kept my mouth shut. If you are looking for a shop to install gears, go check them out and judge for yourself.

Josh at Crawlertech 4x4 does awesome work. I've heard of a lot of people that have used him for gears and axles and have never heard a single complaint. I had him build an 8.8 rear, regear and install lockers in a TJ I had and he did excellent work. He's located off I-25 & 48th.
