Default Shop to setup gears?

I *may* be re-gearing here within the next week or so and was wondering about which shops do a good job? I'd just bring the 3rd's into them. if not I'll get my bro-in-law's bro to do the job on the side. (he's alway SUPAH busy tho.)

Any places up northish? ft. fun? greeley? you'd trust?

duh, didn't even think about him...

sometimes this stuff goes to my head...I'm more worried about which shirt matches my metallic paint job rather than gear swaps.

One thing about the electric lockers in the rear is they need shims to set carrier bearing preload and the back lash. If you do not have the shims in stock, it will take more time to do the job. So you want some one that has done the rear electric locker from toyota from a 80 series. Ben may be your best bet as he may be able to get shims quicker then others if time is a factor. later robbie

Ah, yet another reason I am glad I run minitruck diffs. FJ80 in the front, no shims there either.
