Tampa Gear Install – Jeff's Jeep Yard

I just had my Rubicon’s gears done at “Jeff’s Jeep Yard” in Clearwater. I was referred to Jeff by another JKer, and when I talked to him I was reassured to learn they have set up gears in lots of JKs.

My install went great, and he gave me a good deal. He didn’t know about JKO, so I pimped the site and asked if he would do a deal for other JKO members.

So here’s what he offered:

You bring the gears and install kit (Superior ONLY) and he’ll do the install for $650. Tell him you’re from JKOwners and mention my name (Bryan Garcia) and he’ll give you 10% off as a JKO discount.

Jeff typically asks for two days because he wants to do the install and also break-in the gears. They only use Mobil1 or Royal Purple synthetic. Jeff’s reasonable and will work with you, just give him a call:
Jeff’s Jeep Yard (727-449-0800)
1185 Court St
Clearwater, FL 33577
Here’s a pic of the gear pattern (they sent a bunch of pics during the install):


I don’t work for Jeff, actually this was the first time I met him. I just thought he treated me right and he’s a true jeeper. Also, I had his guys do a bunch of work to strengthen the front 44, and I was real happy. Link to thread:

Happy Jeep'n.

you get 10% off the $650, so it's even cheaper.

I called several places within a 3 hr drive of Tampa. Jeff was the best price of the places I called.

hear great things about Hoyt. met a SICK TJ one day on the courtney cambpel causeway. Hoyt did all the fab work on it (custome stinger, rock rails, rear bumper) was a beast


never heard a bad thing about Jeff's Jeep Yard. went there one day and got kinda the cold sholder from a guy that works there until we stepped outside and he saw my rig... then the story changed a little. but I've always hear Jeff is a standup guy and does a great job.

Jeff does all my work on my JK. He did my gears, lift and next bumpers and snorkel. I have never had a problem with him.
