Regear in VA

I'll be coming off of deployment shortly and one of the top things on my Jeep's "to-do" list is a regear. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations as far as shops go in the VA Beach and surrounding areas and an average of what you or someone you know has paid, if you don't mind sharing. Thanks in advance.

I had Zach from Open Air Jeeps install a Howell Fuel injection on my 89 CJ7. His prices seemed fair and he did great work. He is very knowledgeable when comes to jeeps.

Yea I've heard good things about that place. I guess I'll have to shop around when I get back.

I got mine regeared in Fredericksburg at Iron Pigs Off Road, and it was about $1,600 OTD. I went with 4.88's. Best thing I ever did. I am currently in Afghanistan, where are you?

I knew a guy that set up my d30 gears and new bearings for 175. I brought him the axle w/ empty housing. I need to have some gear work done soon so Ill give him a call. When I do ill ask if hes looking for some more business. If he's up for it Ill pm ya his #.

That seems pretty reasonable, is that just gears or did you go with a locker/shafts too?

And I'm just off the coast from you fixing Jets.

That was just the gears. I think it was going to be about $500 or $600 more for lockers. I get back the first part of December. Hopefully there will be some snow I can get into when I get back.
