    Nitro sells the gear and bearing kit for about $1300 and the ARB is about $900. Rest is labor. The front clamshell is a bitch.

    @Texoma does $1700 sound about right for the labor side?

    For a tax paying shop, that seems about right. I'm about $1k cheaper.

    I remove the front axle and 3rd member and take it to them. Cuts out a lot of the labor. If I’m being lazy the shops around here will do them for $400-$500

    About 5hrs of removal and installation. Less if you've done it a few times.

    Yeah. We pull the lower ball joint bolts, pull them out so we can pop the axles out and then drop the front. Usually a 2 hour process with pulling the rear. Done it a couple dozen times now.


    Also I’m not planning on going back to my 4.30s if anyone is interested in them. Ran them with my 33s cause it’s stock ratio. I would avg 17-19mpg depending on how much highway I’d do.

    Not sure how the turbo and super chargers are going to like the higher rpms but I’ll deal with that bridge when I cross it.

    unless you’re a 6MT guy, then it would be IMO. Totally different story with 2x overdrive gears in the auto..

    Me too, the first thing I did when I got home from the dealership was take selfie with the truck and read the manual.

    Accessory Outfitters in Aloha. I’ve had them do a ton of work and they are a great shop. I just ordered my 5:29 with air lockers. Ask for Austin Rose and tell him Dalton sent you. I have zero affiliation with this shop but have 100% confidence in their skill set. Also Landcruisers NW in NW Portland used to do gearing.

    Right on. I’m very curious how the truck behaves towing on flat to slight uphill around 55 mph if it’s got any pull in 5th around 2000rpm or having to downshift to 4th up to 2900rpm. My trailer is around 3400~3800lbs

    If I do 5th it doesn’t shift for me. I don’t hit 4th till I do the mountains. I’ve got one trip on the gears with the trailer tho and I took it easy.

    awesome to hear, how much does your trailer weigh and what tires are you running?

    3000’ish. I’d have to go look again. I’m on 285/75/16 33s with armor, half bumper and winch

    Wanna say @JoeCOVA did a long trek recently on 33s.

    Awesome info, and nice looking Jayflight I was looking at that trailer for a while actually. This is very comforting as I was worried about cruising down the highway for a long time in 4th at 2900 and wasn't sure after the re gear it would have the power to pull steady at 2k down the flat highway without wanting to hunt down or heat up the tranny. My rpod is actually 3k dry so prolly close to 3600 loaded depending on what we bring along. My completely stock truck cant hold it at 5th down the highway at 55 now I just use 4th at about 2500rpm and it's solid. Thanks for the info I think 5.29 will be the way to go for me once I lift and go with the 33's

    What gear oil are you guys running?
    I can't seem to find anyone besides nitro who makes 80-140.
    everyone else seems to be 85-140
