gears in the Baton Rouge area?

Suggestions for a good shop to regear an '03 Rubicon?

Possiblities I am aware of...

Zimmer Gears
Change 'n' Gears
Cajun Offroad in Lafayette (I'm willing to make the trip if they're worthwhile)

AGCO in Baton Rouge did some diff work for me on another vehicle a few years ago, and its been quiet as a mouse since, but they may be pricey...

Pros or cons to any of these, or others I'm not aware of?

'03 red Rubi

I'm not sure if Phil at Searchers does gears or if he would send them out, which would increase the price. Might try Light Line also, but they may do the same

I just got mine done down there by a guy named Kelly who works for "changing gears" which is out of a transmission shop under another name. He had a good price but changed more than was verbally quoted (still much cheaper than anyone else int he state) and took longer than he said, but stuff comes up I guess. Look him up and get a quote.
