Looks good from my house, but if you look around a little you can find the gears for around the same price on other sites and you could get 4.88's which would be much better IMHO.

I'm not sure about the brand.

It says "Dana Spicer Motive".

You're probably getting Motive brand gears rather than Spicer brand.

If you buy the gears on your own and give them to the installer to install, what happens if something goes wrong? Is the installer going to cover the gears in his warranty? I would never consider providing the gears to the installer because if something goes wrong, and it happens, the installer will likely blame the gears and the gear seller will definitely blame the installer. You are then stuck in the middle with them pointing fingers at each other.

I would simply ask the installer to discount the cost of his gears closer to what you can buy them for and let him provide everything. That way his warranty will cover everything and not just his labor.

Click on "User CP" and look for the Avitar area that allows you to upload a suitably sized .jpg image.

Go straight down directly under User CP once you click onto that page where you'll find the "Edit Avitar" link in the "Settings & Options" section.

Avatars are limited to supporting members.

It used to be that anyone could have one, but that changed a few years back.
