Anyone know of a good 4x4 shop that could regear both diffs for me?
I know this forum is typically quiet but I figured I could take a shot at it.

Thanks

$800 is cheap for what I am finding, I am getting all the stuff myself and going to be paying anywhere from $1000 to $1500 for th install this is with the lockers but only an extra $400 for them.

Well considering that they have to remove the front diff to regear it $800 for F/R regearing on a KJ is a steal.Most places will charge $300-$400 jsut for one diff that does not require it to be removed from the vehicle.

You might try these guys. Honestly, I'm not sure if they're just a supplier of parts, or they'll do the build for you, but I can say that the coolest local liberty I ever saw in the flesh had this shops sticker on it.

Good luck.

Pff, I do.

Ok, yeah, but seriously, I saw this guy on the Ferry from Vashon Island. There are almost no modded libertys here in Seattle, so it kind of makes for a head turner when I see one. He had custom front and rear bumpers from Tough Country, he was way lifted. I snapped a shot of his rear bumper. I was gonna talk to him but he had people in the car and was on his cell phone.

Randy's ring and pinion is out of everett, they are a HUGE supplier of gears, and they DO have a shop. Kinda far from where you are. How far are you looking to travel?
