gears in the Baton Rouge area?

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

Possiblities I am aware of...

Searchers
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?

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.

I'm thinking about giving Kelly a call...Your gears still holding up well? Satisfied long term?

Thinking of doing a gear changing on my 2012 JKUR since going to a bigger tire. Are you guys satisfied with the work you had done a Change N Gears?

I wouldn't have suggested him if I wasn't.

I have sold the jeep now but it works well for over a year and many wheeling trips.
