gear installation

So i am looking into having new gears installed and i have read how important it is to have someone who is familiar with JK gear installation. Are they diffrent than gears in other vechials. Does it have to be an off-road store to do the install? Just wondering because i am going to start looking for price on the labor and i want to make sure i get the job done right the first time. Dont know how bad someone can mess up my jeep if the gear installation is diffrent. im getting 5.13's installed in my sahara dana 30 front dana 44 rear. Thanks

The issue is with the locker in the Rubicon, its better to have someone that is familiar with that installation, you should be fine with any good gear shop

Don't let the price dictate who installs them. Just ask around and find out who has the best reputation. I would rather pay someone a little extra that has a good rap sheet than some one who is cheaper and no one knows about them.
I have the same set up and very happy with 5.13s.

I am about to do the same thing; only I am doing it myself. Gears are about the same but the setup is different between models.
