    Installed 4.30 gears today, preassembled by ECGS. Used @MonkeyProof's write up and it went in easily!

    And installed wheel bearings done preassembled by @05Taco4x4. Quality stuff and makes it an easier job, just take the old ones off, and slap the new ones on.

    Both took all day but saved a couple thousand bucks in Labor!

    Quick question, with your wiring, does it just up and over the side of the cubby box towards the engine bay?

    I'm about to install mine within the upcoming weeks and was trying to figure out where the wiring goes .
