    Has anyone re-geared lately and remember the cost of the whole thing, whether the shop did it or you did it on your own.

      $400-600 per axle (including parts) is normal depending on location.

        How about cost to rebuild a clutch, inc fresh master cylinder, release bearing and clutch plate? I am being quoted stupid figures, with the excuse that it will entail 9 hours labour, dropping the transmission etc.

        ...Can't help thinking that I am being taken for a ride!

          TEB, you are high-jacking some one's thread. It takes a little over an hour to disconnect the bolts, both drive shafts, skid plate, and pull the starter; and then about the same to re-install. Clutch components are another matter depending on the condition; pulling and re-installing. If they are putting OEM in on the Master Cylinder; I know this is over $350.00; other products are way cheaper. The clutch components can add up the same way "if" you go OEM! 8 hrs is not out of the ordinary on this job complete!!

            I just paid $450 bucks for front and rear 4.56s shipped. Gonna install them myself. Total cost under $500. plus my time

            Now the expensive part. Gear pullers, press, inlb and ft lb torque wrench, impact gun, dial caliper with adapters, misc hand tools. Easily $1500 worth of tools to do the job right. Luckily I have or have access to all of these.

            Some local guys will cut you a break at $150 a set, most places $200-300 a set around here.


            as for the clutch $800-1000 is not unreasonable, parts around $400 for top of the line parts.

              I was quoted $1,100 for gears and install. Then I asked about dropping in a new axle in the back and I was quoted $2,000. Thats just me.

                  If that doesnt include the cost of the axle its highway robbery. A real axle can be swapped out at home with minimal tools in under two hours. (less if your not reusing the ubolts and just chisel them off.)

                    Yes that is with the price of the new axle. I can't weld so I plan on having someone do it for me. Proboly the local 4 wheelinn shop. But for a new super 30 install and regear totally it was $2,000. I am going to put an 8.8 in though. I will just get it out of a junk yard for like $200 have a shop weld up some brackets on it and regear it and then I will put it in my self. So all that and install axle my self for like $1500 max if that.

                      just curious, are you going to put in lockers while you have the whole thing torn apart?

                        I found parts for $260. Thats R&P,carriers, and master install kits. I got quoted for labor for $200 an axle. So all together thats $660. Take your time and find the deals (if your a broke college kid like me).

                          I was quoted 2-3k for parts and labor from the only shop locally I could find (called quite a few places) So I said screw it ordered my gears master install kits and a new front carrier (I had 3.55 gears so I needed the lower gear carrier and since I swapped in a 8.8 I did not need one for the 35) all for 550 I also needed some tools (not really, but I thought I did) 250 from matco in pullers which I used one of the pullers like 4 times the other one I used once, I could have done without them. Live and learn I am still in the process of setting up the front gears, I did the rear in 8 hrs and I am 90% sure I did everything right after running the final pattern at 4 a.m. I have spent a good 15-20 hrs on the front and leadfoot says I am close but I think he is lieing lmao might have it done this weekend, I wanto try out my 4wd and corbeau seats

                          Edit I also got an inch lb torque wrench from matco for 80 the thing is tiny but it works better then a clicker one my dad was a machinist so he had the calipers and dial indicator but snap-on has one for 180 I think??

                              I ordered 4.88s from Randys ring and pinion with master install kits for both axles for $420 shipped. Did the install myself. Took about 3 days in a friends garage. Its really not THAT hard to do it yourself. I have none of the tools to make it easy either. You can do it.
