Re-gear in Columbus Ohio

Does anyone know of or have experience with a good place to take my TJ to get it re-geared? I'm thinking of going to 4.56's from 3.73's. Thanks in advance.

Best thing you could do is go around to all the shops (a lot of the time transmission shops and custom shops) and see what they charge for it. Otherwise find a good mechanical buddy and have him do it for ya for free

2006 rubicon regear for 35" tires

Can anyone tell me what gears I should go with as a result of putting in a 6" lift and 35" tires. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would definately go w/ 4.88 gears. This will set you up perfect for multi use. Get your rpms back up where they need to be.

Thanks for the info

Any ideas on how much I should set aside to purchase and then install the 4.88s?

I normally charge $300 to regear (average cost). Some are more depending on which locker is installed. If metal particles are found, I add about .5-1.0 hrs to properly clean the housing. If metal is found, replace wheel bearings and seals.
