Tj Help with gear install Redding, CA

Any one in the Redding area that would be willing to help me do a gear install? I'd be willing to pay just don't want to pay shop prices and on top of it not be able to learn anything. Please let me know.

Wanting to do 4.88 into a TJ. Also, potentially a Powertrax No-Slip. 30 front and 44 rear.

You guys ever hook up on a good gear mechanic? I just bought a rubicon with 4.10s and I'm going to 5.13s.

I am currently enrolled in the Diesel Technology program at Shasta College and it just so happens that one of my first classes this semester is a drive train class... After finishing this class I will have the knowledge to do gear changes so it's just a matter of time now. Not saying that I think I'm going to be efficient about it or be the best gear tech out there but I will at least have the knowledge to do it and do it right as well as continue to learn while doing it.

I could help those in So Cal. If I was up in that area I would help in a heart beat. Honestly up until a few months ago the only tbing i hadn't done on a car or truck was gearing. Since then I have done 6. It's easier than you guys think. If you sre willing to buy a few specialty tools you can do it.

Hey Joker and framanda, there is a Redding Black Sheep 4x4 club meeting this Saturday to do a little trail cleaning on the way to Tamarack. We meet at AM/PM on Oasis Rd 7am. If you into it, meet up there and we can chat.

Aside from that, I'm getting my gears done at Action Axle in Redding in about 2 weeks. I really don't want to pay the labor, but I fear I'll mess up big time if I try to do it myself.

Really??? This would save me SO much money. I haven't even considered it because countless people say that it's so complex and that a rookie risks burning up the gears and wasting a ton of money. What if it's my DD?

Yes. If you purchase everything you need it can be. PM me for further assistance. I have most except a dial tq wrench as mine took a dive recently and isn't reliable anymore.
