DANA 30/E-Locker

Hi guys! I need help in finding a good place to have install my E locker with new ring and Pinion. I live in Oak Creek, WI and I don't know of any place that would specialize on 4WD .Does anybody know a place close by that I can have them install the New Ring and pinion/E-Locker? I have the differential all apart right now cause im doing a complete overall,got the housing by it self so it is pretty easy to take it any where I want to, and its completely clean.Basically all I need is for them to do the Ring and pinion/E locker. I will do the rest. Does anybody knows a place close to me?Thanks.

I am not keeping the same R&P.I am going with Yukon 4.88,cause in the near future I am planing to use 35" tires(got 33" right now). I just need a place to take my DIF. housing to install the R&P on the E-locker. :0)

I hope you marked the orientation of the bearing caps and which side each was on before you took it apart.

You don't need a specialty 4x4 shop to have someone knowledgable in ring and pinion installations. Rear wheel drive vehicles have them too and there are lots of mechanics not working in 4WD shops that have differential experience.

Find a local 4WD club and see if someone who's a member has a recommendation. There's a Great Lakes 4x4 forum with lots of members in the Minnesota/Wisconsin area that you might find help in as well. http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/forumindex.php
