    Wow. Try 4 LOW or get the mod harness RWD LOW. Yes indeed nice and low. It's sweet. You will like it.

    How much does it typically cost for 4.88s with installation?

    That’s not bad at all! From what I’m seeing on Nitro Gears site, it is like $1500 for the gears for the 4x4. I was thinking the labor would be like 500-1000. If I’m off here, please let me know.

    Well that one you picked is for an e locker. Your best bet is to call Just Differentials (Nitro) and ask for Mik. He’s legit

    +1 to that. Mik is solid. He sold me my gears and all of his guidance was spot on.

    Pricing for gears is pretty consistently around $1400. Per our club mechanic, it takes about 6 hours to do a front, and 8 to do the rear. At that point, the variable is if you’re paying a buddy with a few bottles of nice whiskey, or a shop at $150/hr rates.
