Gears

My plans for the next month are pretty simple:

Gears
Cold air intake and tune.

Which should I go with first? I know for a fact I'm gonna get 4.10s, but how much do people charge to put gears in?

Re: Gears

Well if you still have your 7.5 open differential then you will want to get a GT take off for the 8.8 and Traction Lock (It will help so much). That will cost quite a bit more, but it will be worth it and everyone will agree with that... I would say get the Cai and the tune first.

It is the 7.5, and a lot of people hate working on them! I called the dealer, and they said 775.00 to do it all. If it's that much, I'll get the cai and tune, as well as throttle body spacers first.

Don't get a TB spacer, they do absolutely nothing unless you have ha SC or TC which require large amounts of airflow... And it is worth it upgrading to an 8.8 diff with the traction lock. But yea it would bet best to get the cai and tune first.
Do you have a dual exhaust conversion? Or are you still single?

Re: Gears

Get headers, cai and a tune... That will maximize your airflow to achieve good power.

You think it would be complicated to do the gears yourself? I like doing my own work and am thinking about gears as well but dont want to take it to a shop to get them on

Gears are the most difficult thing to do yourself and if you mess it up it can be thousands to repair
