Any shops in CA build bolt in axles?

I don't really have the time or the skill to build an axle myself and would rather just buy an axle to just bolt in. Does anybody know of a company (preferably around Fresno) that builds axles like ECGS? I'm thinking about just ordering one from ECGS, but would rather buy local.

Ideally I would put an XJ D44 in the rear, but I think an 8.8 would be a lot easier to acquire. Nothing fancy for either one, just 4:10 gears.

I was hoping to keep it in Fresno county. And dynatrac is way out of my price range and needs. I'm just looking for a basic axle swap to give me the 4.10 gears and enough strength to not worry about it. I don't do much wheeling and when I do, it's really mild since this Jeep is also my DD.

Just go find a 8.8 with the gears you want and have a shop install it. Couldn't be more than $500 total. Especially if you can source all the parts instead of ordering out of a catalog.

I've been shopping around but was hoping I could get a name of a local shop that someone had experience with.

What about your local club? Who do they use?

If you want a more custom setup, there's a shop here in Santa Clara called "Rearend Specialties" - I've sent a good deal of work their way. I'm not sure just how far they can go - but I've been wanting to ask him about building up a fore/aft pair of D44's for me...

I know it's not Fresno-area, but it's closer than Huntington Beach - and probably cheaper. I've seen everything up to about a Class 5 heavy truck in his shop.

Might wanna ask Rockworm who he uses. He's more than just squared away.

That's a good idea. His jeep is ready for anything, but still homegrown.

Hav'nt been to these shops in awhile, but there is Northside 4x4 in Clovis and Extreme Off Road, also in Clovis.

Dave at Extreme geared my 8.8. But that was a few years ago and I have no idea what the cost would be now. Around here, the hard part will be finding an 8.8 in 4.10. PnP down on Jensen prolly still has some Exploders out there, but who knows what gears they have? A buddy of mine had an old waggy 44 rear laying around. Not sure if he still has it. It would have to be geared and set up for a YJ.
