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

Or you could take it to Chappelles in El Cajon off Pioneer rd. Dave does all my custom stuff, he just finished my rear cage and front trackbar mount. Then you wouldnt have to take it so far. Daves # is (619)588-1263

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.
