    So long as he knows what needs to be done and has the tools to do it right, I don't see any reason why he couldn't do it. If you have a Rubicon, getting the locker re-installed correctly can be tricky and a lot of inexperienced shops screw this up.

    I have a sahara unlimited.

    Is there a write up for the regearing anywhere?

    If not would it be possible for you to quickly give ME an idea of what needs to be done?

    I would really appreciate it.

    Info regarding 3.5" lift and 35" tires.

    Re-gearing is not that hard if you have the time and patience. If you have never done it before and not afraid of trying. I would recommend pulling the axles completely out and putting them on a bench if you are inexperienced. Takes a little more time, but a lot easier for a beginner. When I did mine I pulled them out to drill holes for installing lockers and had the complete job done in just over a day.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
