Default Who are we using for gears?

I am looking at installing 4:88s in my FZJ as stock is too high a ratio with 35s. I want to buy from one of our supporters. Whom do you recommend? Thanks, Terry

Always somethin!

Robbie (powderpig) did mine a few weeks ago. 100% recommend him for the install...and he has the hookup for buying the gears.

X2 If I didn't do them myself Robbie would be my first choice!

I will have to have the work done in Tucson, but I want to buy the gears from a supporting source. Tim, thanks for the link to Christo. I should have thought of him first! Terry

Nitro gears from Christo\Robbie. My Nitro's have been working well for over a year now. Plus I saw the owner of Nitro on the trail at Cruise Moab this year and he gave me a shirt.
