A regear here (what we charge but we are a few hundred to a grand less then most) is only 900$ plus the loaded carrier of 130 = 1030$ total drive in/out. Cant believe that its 2-3K more there?

Typical labor time is 4-5 hours.

From 4.10 to 4.56 is less than 500 RPM @70mph. Most people speed wander THAT much (if they're in front of me even more it seems) anyway.

I simply deplored the 31's with 4:10, my first impression was gutless under 2000 rpm... LOVE the zip of the 5.13s and 31s!!! I run 35s from late March to early november (trail ready) and 31's in winter (work vehicle). Negligible (<1) difference in hiway mpg... actually improves around town - less throttle to get moving.

Of course 90mph is a no go if downshift is needed to hold it... with either tire! (the 35 putbulls aren't happy over 70 anyway).
huge difference in 12-13 auto then in a pre 12 auto with 4.10 33" tires 70 2426rpm vs 2017 rpm in the older tranny. Plus the 3.6 has a enough zip to make that about the perfect combo for me. 31" at 70mph in a 12-13 would be 3230 rpm and running 70mph for me gets me rear ended.

Sounds like you need to take a road trip to the states and have it done here.

Yah I think that would be a good idea. Can anybody think of a downside to going over the border to do a regear? I would worry if anything serious happened and I had to get it towed to Great Falls or something that would be painful but probably still cheaper than local haha.

Not sure I would trust anyone in Greatfalls. I have been looking into having a regear and the shops I have talked too do not do enough of them to really know what they are doing. Ask how they are going to deal with the crush sleeve and they look at you like you have a 3rd eye. I'm sure there is some capable shops south of Lethbridge but I would do some research first.

Maybe you should look into getting some Rubicon take-off axles. They will have 4.10 gears plus you will be upgrading to a D44 for the front and lockers on both.
Check with Northridge 4x4 and maybe they can point you towards a local shop that could hook you up. > http://www.northridge4x4.ca
Just a thought and I think you could come in pretty close to the prices you have been quoted.

Yes great idea. Way more for the money. I dont know how to go about finding one but I think I'll start with Northridge and phone other shops to hopefully track some down. Thanks for the idea

To anyone thats still watching this thread, do I need a minor or major install kit? I have 20,000 km on the jeep now so things shouldn't be even remotely worn out but I don't understand the difference between the kits so my km's may be irrelevant for all i know. Thanks!

Where are you? Ill take a road trip for that price haha. Funny you say its 4-5 hours. I was quoted a "realistic" estimate of 17 hours. I don't even know if I could go jeepless for 3 work days. I think they are just tools, I am sure it isn't the most straight forward thing to do but 17 hours is ridiculous.
