Hey!

I will be looking to install gears in my new '12 in the next month or two. I am considering just having them done, but I usually prefer to do things myself if it's realistic. It's far more satisfying to know whats going on first-hand in the Jeep.

The trouble is, I've never done a gear install. Anyone in the area experienced with gearing and able to show a new guy the ropes? No rush on it.

Thanks!
Adam

I like to dabble in shite too but a gear install is pretty important. Its one thing I won't touch and I have a buddy with an 80 series that is paying the price for trying to do it "yourself". I would have it done by either HC 4x4, they set up my prorock, or 4 wheel parts in Denver, they did my initial install a few years back. It seems the Bach crawlers place in monument is pretty nice, I am not sure what all they perform tho. I think fourplyn also got his done at 4wheel parts along with tonkajeep.

Good luck! Wave If you see the big yellow rig Rollin!

A mechanic friend of mine who can do everything, including engine swaps in his sleep recommended I get my gears done at a shop that specializes in nothing but gears. On his advice, I would not attempt this mod at my local service station nor in my garage with some beer buddies. There must be a reason why the good shops charge so much in labor costs.

Haha. Well, there it is...firm advice that it is better to pay the pros on this one. That is fine by me. I would hate for my work to tank somewhere in the middle of nowhere on my trip to the arctic circle next summer.

Thanks, fellas. I will certainly wave!
