Are you re-gearing for 35s or 37s?

Are you re-gearing for larger tires?

Are you installing them? If not, what are you getting charged to have it done?
I’m installing them.

I’d expect 400-600 per axle or 5-7 hours of labor per axle if I were paying someone to do it.

Nice, I watched a video on Dana's website on installing them in a JL and it looked relatively easy. I just don't have a back up vehicle in case it took longer than expected lol

If a shop has a ton of gear swaps under their belt, they could probably knock both axles out in 4 hours. That’s pretty common. Same day gears, unless they’re backed up, can easily be done. If you do them yourself, start early in the morning and don’t do it on the weekend. If you need any advice or parts, the people you need to talk to will be off work.

Gears are still on the shelf. I'm waiting for a day when I can start in the morning and focus. My daughter has been sick, so it's been put off for a bit. Probably next Tuesday or Thursday. I'll definitely update this thread when I get her done.

Did you ever get a quote from them out the door for both parts and labor?
Sorry man. I thought I replied this morning. I guess not.

I never got a quote from them for both. I had went into this knowing I wasn’t going to use anyone for the labor.
