And...you can stack the Fuel and Volts gauges and add Trans Temp, Oil temp, Altitude (), etc.

The most recent set of gears I purchased, I got through John, at Border Parts in Spring Valley.

I wanted a set of 4.56 Spicers, but Spicer discontinued making them for the differential I needed them for. I ended up getting a set of Motive Gears, which are made in Italy.

As a heads-up, John likes to deal with repeat customers & his prices will varry according to his mood, your attitude, patience, and demeanor. I thoroughly enjoy spending my money there, and he always seems to enjoy taking it.

I would also second Border Parts, you can get what you need without the wait. As Joe mentioned, go in there with a positive attitude and your get a deal. John's prices do vary, but its a great business/junk yard of parts. I am not even sure how he has it organized, if you walk in there it looks like a hoarders place of business.

Ive also purchased from http://www.ringpinion.com/ and so has my brother in-law.

Here is a link to a very nice gear calculator, gives you a choice for your 32 rh and then you can plug in axle ratios, tire sizes and see what rpms you come up with at different speeds. Gives a you a pretty good idea where things are at.
