CJ7 Gears

Alright guys need a little help here. I'm somewhat new to Colorado springs and dont know the local shops and I need to get new gears installed in my jeep. I am looking for a great shop with good prices. To put new gears in for me. I've got a Dana 44 rear and a Dana 30 front, going to 4.56's. I believe the current gears are 2.73's. I checked a few years but have since forgotten. I do know that they are less than 3.73 so I have to have new carriers or the Thick cut ring and pinion. I currently have 33" tires and a 4 cyl. So it's struggling hard now to drive. thanks for the help!

Ive heard rumors of a guy in the springs that will set up gears for 100 bucks an axle, but he'll only do them if theyre out of the jeep. I need to find out some more info on him for myself, need to get that done soon too.

Awesome thanks guys. Denver is too far for my jeep With its current set up. With the cold weather, my drive to work (9 miles), the Jeep over heats. I've replaced radiator and did a flush. Fan is controlled by the engine via belt, so that might not be putting out enough to keep it cool. But I'm thinking it's the tires with the stock gears. Definantley try to get me the guys info about the $100 per axle. That'd be great if everything works out. I can take them out without too much problems. Again, thanks for the info.
