Good place for gearing near seattle?

Hey guys, I'm looking to get swap out my gearing in my flatfender with some 4:56's from the 3:73's that I have in it now but can't find a reasonable price!

I live about 15min north of seattle (kenmore), and I called the places that I'm familiar with (Randy's R&P, olympic 4x4 and 4wheelparts) but everybody is about $800 or more PER axle with parts and labor. I remember it being a lot cheaper last time I had it done for a different vehicle. I don't have the tool's or the know-how to do this project myself and I don't to spend tons of cash for this! I was thinking $500 or so might be ok?

Anybody know a good and reliable place for cheaper?

I just picked my zj up from Randy's R&P after having 4.56's and a locker installed. It wasn't cheap in the slightest... walked away spending $2800 after needing a few more items that I didn't expect, but the piece of mind knowing it was done right is worth every penny to me. Cheap work isn't good, and good work isn't cheap. Just my $.02 Hope you find what your looking for

I'm probably going to use Jim Kimble with Eagle Racing. He had a decent price, perhaps not the cheapest but it's competitive and he uses good quality parts.

Randy's Ring and Pinion seems a little high to me but no doubt they do good work. IIRC, I think budgeting for about $600 / axle is reasonable for parts and labor. Decent gears, bearings, seals, and a rebuild kit for the axle is probably $350-ish. The rest being labor.
