    I need to get my truck re-geared and im looking for a good shop that can do the job right and have some sort of policy that will cover the work if they mess it up. I would prefer the shop be knowledgeable of off road vehicles and rear differentials... Anyone know of a good place?

    Call corporate on them, they will settle that shit instantly. 4wheelparts orlando have done this with others, a couple of phone calls settled everything and got rid of those who didn't matter to the company.
