Nope. You have to set the backlash and a few more important things. Most will recommend not pending the money on the 35.

Shops will charge between 1k-$1500.
If you take the axles off and take them to the shop it might be cheaper.

Used to have a good sig but Mod threated to ban me...

Labor at a shop will be between $200 and $400 per axle to install gears.

The cost of living in Cali is suppose to be high, that price to regear would have me driving to Cali for all my auto work.

Pretty easy to install once you see what you're doing. Spring perches driveline adapter brake lines and ebrake cables and shock mounts all need to be addressed to install it. Pinion angle will be set with the spring perches. It's a lot easier than what people make it out to be.

It's more a matter of shopping around and doing business with the folks that need the business. Times are tough and shops need work and if you're willing to be a nice guy and send them some work then they can usually cut you a deal. If not, you need to work on your negotiating skills.

35's are bad mkay

take the advice on the 35 before you spend a whole paycheck on it and get something else. I dropped a 97 Taco 8" with new gears and detroit for $400 AND, it is bolt in if your SOA. if not just weld on perches, get an adapter ($25) and your good to go. Brake lines fit right up.

I am also preparing to do 4.88s but in a dana30 front and 8.8 rear. I got the 8.8 for $150 and the gears and install kits all for $465. Not a bad deal for a set up that will last me for probably the life of my YJ and possibly more!

Like others have said, do not throw money at the turdy5, they have been known to break even when not wheeled. Shop around for a good price on an 8.8. It obviously depends on the area, but they go for anywhere between $75-$250 around here, and most of them are in the $150 range.

WOW I need to get the number of your gear guy, I paid double those prices. But maybe the valley is cheaper than the Bay Area.

I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

I got quotes from three places here and those were the numbers I came up with at different times of the year and one or two axles brought to them. I spent some time to go inside and talk to some of them face to face and got a better price.
