    Thoughts on this quote for regear?

    Hey guys was looking to get tour thoughts on the quote I got for a regear since itís well outside my realm of knowledge. Yes, I know itís only a D30 but Iím fairly comfortable that it will fit my needs for long enough especially seeing as I might be moving soon so likely wheeling even less often, and the next serious upgrades would hopefully be when it is a second vehicle.

    Parts- $725:
    Revolution 4.56 gears, carrier, bearings, seals, etc., Procal (if I want it, but have JScan so minus 100 if I opt out).
    Labor-$550:
    Includes regear and also pulling covers to inspect after first 500 miles.

    Heíd also put on aftermarket diff covers if I want. His recommendation was Motobilt at $100 each, no extra on labor.

    Iíll add that the guy has this fab shop as a second business on the weekends and was booked solid thru last weekend of June. Definitely struggled to find a relatively nearby shop seeing as the tastes out here are for form over function.

    If that is for front and rear it seems like a pretty decent deal to me.

    Sounds like a reasonable deal. That's better than what I've found near Denver for regearing.

    Price sounds good. Since itís a one man operation Iíd check with some prior customers to see if theyíre happy with the service and quality.

    Have him take pictures of the marking compound once itís setup ďfor your recordsĒ if he gets that right nothing else to really mess up

    Read all the reviews I could and couldnít find much negative. Was reassuring to see it wasnít only wranglers he works on and seems to stand behind his builds hosting rides for the rigs to come out and hit the trails with.

    Is the marking compound the yellow stuff on the gear? He has quite a few pictures on his Instagram of them.

    Seems like a good deal to me. I got charged $500 per axle in labor for mine.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
