Thumbs up Rory & Son Transmission and Driveline

thought i would give my input on this shop in va. beach. i ran into a project that i was stumped with and gave these guys a call. all i can say is this will be my shop to go to! great mechanics and all around good guys to just talk cars and jeeps with. very military friendly as well.

and don't let the title fool you they do way more than transmissions and drivelines. (think gear set ups, lifts, etc. - basically anything)

I'm going to bump this thread for anyone in the area.

I just got a decent amount of work done at Rory and Son and all I can say is that they are some awesome people to work with. If you have anything you need done to your Jeep these are the guys to talk to. They regeared my Jeep to 4.88, installed a Detroit in the D44, mounted my new KM2's, and even swapped my coils for me and for all of that they kept the price well below what I have been quoted in the area for just a regear.

I would very highly recommend them for any work regardless of how simple or complicated it is. James, the above poster, kept me completely in the loop on everything he was doing and didn't even mind how nosy and annoying I can be, hahaha. The work was done in a very timely manner and was completed with nothing short of perfection. These guys will without a doubt be my go to shop for anything that stumps me.

3" Currie progressives, OME Shocks, 1" BL, 1" MML, 35x12.50" KM2's, 4.88's, Detroit in rear, Vanco BBK, Currie CA's

Pm me a price to regear a d60 to 456 with a Detroit. My buddy has the parts. Labor only. He could drive it there or bring the axle by itself.

I apologize I never got a notification about this message in regards to the D60 but I have made sure to update all of our notification settings now.
