Quadratec has good service. Ive heard good and bad about Randys. Ive also had good service from Roeder racing years ago.

Brands that come to mind are Richmond, Dana, Superior, and Yukon. Thier all good. Gears are one of the few items that can be purchased with confidence brand wise....I dont know of any generic brands out there that may be of questionable quality. None that Ive seen anyway.

quadratec has good prices...but bob supplee may be able to beat them. he offers free shipping as well Smile

i don't have lots of experience with one brand or another...but my yukons seem to be holding up fine.

Bob Supplee and DC4WD are two I buy a lot of stuff from. 4x4rockshop and Northridge4x4 are two I've added to my list of shops I do business with.

I agree that the brands listed above are good quality. I also know a couple guys running Genuine Gear without any problem.

The best pricing I've seen is package deals from the parts warehouses. Typically, a gear set is around $200, and install kit is $100. ( for a quality master kit) These are rough figures. That makes the parts cost of regearing front and rear around $600. My local 4Wheel Parts warehouse sells front and rear Jeep sets with both install kits for the $400 / $450 range. If you are planning on doing the other axle in the near future, you might save money by buying a front and rear kit...check your magazines for gear kit advertisements from the warehouses.

Of course, the pricing varies greatly by model / gear size. If you have a Dana 70 or something then it is obviously more expensive.

4WP is horrible and those prices are pretty bad too. Try contacting the vendors listed in this thread for some prices. The last R&P I bought was $120 from DC4WD for a Dana/Spicer, probably the best gearset out there.

X2 I'd gouge my eyes out before doing business with those clowns again.
