Are you in P-cola like your location says? You have NE Fl in the title and P-cola is NW. Only reason I ask is what shop is going to regear for $250-300? Is it out there or here in NE Fl (Jax area)?
I need to have my front pinion redone (preload reset with new crush sleeve and nut only) and most shops i have called will not touch it for less than $600 and that include the shop I just had the lift and axle swap done at. Same shop was going to charge me $2400 for regear f/r D30/D35 with locker in front and open in rear 4.56 gears.
98 TJ 4.0L, 5spd, 4.25 Zone lift, D-locked D30/D35 w/4.56 gears, MCE GEN I Flares, 33" Trxxus ATs, Engo 10K# winch, rear disc brake conversion.
My idea of help from the man above is a sniper on the roof.
