    I put 33's on my truck and now want to regear. However after searching, maybe I've missed it, I have not found any thread on how to actually do the work. I have a 2011 sport so I have the 8.4 dif with 3.73. I'm going to regear to 4.10. Any info would be great. Thanks

    Hmmmm. I have a hard time letting people work on my stuff. Hard to get people to do things right.

    you can take out your diffs yourself and get www.eastcoastgearsupply.com to send you a regeared diff in exchange, they do top notch work

    Check East Coast Gear. They sell the fully assembled 3rd member. All you need to do is replace yours with it, and send yours back to them as a core. Much easier than trying to do the gears yourself.

    Crap! Beat me to it by a minute..... :)

    Cool thanks for the info.

    Could I also just find a donor 2.7 and pull the diff from that or is it different? Do i drop the axle to change the diff or can I leave it in place?
