anyone know how to set gears?

I'm in the Eugene area and just put in a 8.8 under my TJ. I want to regear it but I'd like to learn how rather than pay someone to do it.
I'm willing to pay someone to help if you know what your doing.

Whatever you do, avoid Dunks in Springfield!





Terry at Kaiser Brake and alignment is great.

Dunk's doesn't set up gears, they send it to a guy who does it for them. He screwed me and set the shims up wrong. The pattern was good, till the shims puked out.

I don't recall the rates, but it wasn't too bad.
