I'm running precision gears in my truck and am very happy with them.

There was also some hoopla with Trail Gear and some VERY non tread lightly activity.

I have set up several different branded gears. I have the "economy Yukons" in the back. They were the only gearset I ever built that howled. They didn't break in after 5000 miles. They finally went quiet after JKimmel took me on Billings Canyon.

I guess my setup was right, but the surface of the cheap yukons is rougher than "better" gears. Needless to say, I haven't had any other problems with that diff (so far) and it has been about 35,000 miles.

I think setup is more important than anything.

cool, thanks for the info guys, I really appreciate it. I think I am going to take a swag at setting them up myself... and will probably do the precision gears.

I run Yukons.
The rear Yukons are US Gear, and the front Yukons are Precision. LOL
Yukons are not junk. But there are two 'levels' and you can request the better ones.

Even though Red Chili is just a poser Bill brings up a good point. Quality never comes with a cheap price tag! One of the worst gear sets out there I know of right now are Genuine Gear. They are too hard and sing like a song bird! However the GG install kits are value priced and use Federal Mogul bearings. Ohhh and sorry Chili....ya know I'm just jealous!

Dunno, I think I knew that. Just went with what the wrench put in, I trusted the shop and mechanic. :-)

If you search for "6 stud knuckles" that may help dial in the opinions.. both on Mud and on Pirate. But be ready to kill an hour or so.
