Gear Shop - Eastern NC

Has anyone dealt with Down East Offroad in Wilson, NC, specifically re-gearing? I'm wanting to re-gear my 08 2-dr. I've read mixed reviews of this place, but nothing that specifically mentioned gear work.

Or does anyone have a recommendation on a gear shop in Eastern NC? I've read a lot of good things about East Coast Gear Supply in Raleigh, but I would love to find somewhere a little closer.

I hope I'm posting this on the right forum. Thanks folks.

The shop we used for the motor swap in our bronco does regears, for cheap too, and they are based out of Sanford. I personally havn't had them regear my jeep but seeing some of the stuff they have done i wouldn't think twice about letting them work on my rig.

I've never dealt with them on regears as I do my own. I have however dealt with them on some other things and have been pleased with the service from them. I have known a few others who have been pleased as well.

Thanks. I have been looking at East Coast Gear Supply in Raleigh, but it would be nice to go somewhere a little closer.

I considered doing it myself, but I don't have any of the specialty tools. I think I would spend about the same money buying a dial indicator, etc. that I would probably never use again. Unless I'm way off track...

Your correct. Buying the correct quality tools would run you a good bit. I bought them but Ive used them enough they've paid for themself. If East Coast is your choice for a shop the drive is worth it

I've had a good experience with DEO. No re-gearing but they put my new lift on my XJ. Was prob going to have them do my axle work.

East Coast Gear in Raleigh/Durham is great too. They used to be called Sperryman Auto. They specialize in Toyota but do good work on Jeeps too.
