Hi all. I am running 3.5" of lift on my 07 with 35" tires and I would like to switch to 4.88 gears. My question is; where is a reputable place to get something like that done (I live in S.W. lower Michigan and there are a million mom and pop garages)? Can I do it myself? If so, how difficult is it? Where is a good place to buy them?
Thanks,
Keith

I would highly recomend having them done by a professional. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't just go anywhere. I would take the time to find a recommended shop. I have had friends that have had semi botched jobs by random shops...

Well, I sell the gear kits and install kits for the JK, but I couldn't recommend a shop. There is alot to the install, if you've got the dial gauges and calipers and such and can follow a manual very closely, you could tackle the job.

If you order any of these, make sure you add the install kit on each item as you add them to your cart, and type in this special coupon code at checkout

coupon code = shipmygearsfree (ships jk superior gears and install kits for free!)

Yeah get it done by a professional for sure. I never recommend a first timer to do gears. There has to be a shop in your area to get it done just have to do your homework. Sorry I'm not from michigan.

You could buy the gears and have a dealer install them. Although they may not be the best way to go for a lot of aftermarket product installs, I'd think this would be a good match.
