    I dread changing gears. I hope I don’t get gear whine too.

    Does anyone have recommendations for shops in Utah to get gears done? I've heard Agility Customs is pretty good.

    Got the truck put back together today/tonight.
    Have to relearn to drive the truck. Completely different feel with rpms vs speed etc. Going to be a fun break in period.

    It was topping out at like 83-84mph, someone on fb asked if it was regeared, ended up having the prior owner call me and he told me it was.

    That was nice of the previous owner to do, and a hell of a deal on the truck then

    Has anyone in the Salt Lake area worked with a shop to regear that they would recommend? Looking for a good value for sure, but also don't want some back alley job.

    I've heard Agility Customs does them. They're a reputable shop, but not sure how often they do regears.

    I was referred to The Yota Guy in Midvale by a couple of off-road shops in Utah County. Tried to get pricing and timeframe from Midnight 4x4 several times with no luck. I’ve got gears scheduled with TYG at the end of this month. Fingers crossed.

    It’s been about 10 months and I’m looking into getting front/rear 5.29 diff oil changed. This will be 2nd. Got the initial 500m oil changed back in Oct 2019. Should i stick with the same: Lucas 85w-140?

    and how many 1-Gallon do i need?

    At 500 mile break in, or every 30k miles. You can find the quart bottles for $8 each on Amazon as well.
