I'm happy to hear that it's not that much money because One of my friends told me it's like $1100

I got quotes from respected shops here in FL for between $500 and $750. I went with steeda and paid $533 out the door. Thats for gears, install, and all the gaskets and fluids. If you need new bearings you can add about $100 on to that price but with a 2013 you should be fine. I had just over 30K miles on my 2012 when I got mine done and did not need new bearings.

If your not installing the gears yourself you are better off just buying them from the place that is installing them. If you want to try it yourself then there is an install kit you can buy. It has the gaskets, gear oil and just about everything else you need.

if you get the bama tune you will have free tunes for life. just tell them you are getting gears and the ratio and they will send you tunes via e-mail. then you can put them on the tuner and load them on the car as soon an the gears are done. it's up to you on how you want to do it but you can get the tune for your gears either way.

thats a dealer for ya. There not going to give you a good deal because they dont want to have to warranty the work. Your better off going to a speed shop that is used to doing things like gears anyways. You will get a better price and a shop that does gear swaps regularly.

He's right, unless your dealer is a Mustang fan, and many are, use a speed shop.

Dealers usually use the "FLAT RATE BOOK"

They go by the book and if the books say's it takes five hours that is what they charge you for even if it only takes two or three hours to do a job.

I have no clue what this all entails so I am wondering what shops you guys are going to? Just a regular mechanic that you trust or are these specialty shops or just dropping it off at a Jiffy Lube and hoping for the best?

Unless in the last 30-40 years gears got to be a drop-in operation like an alternator, most folks back in my day had to go to a shop that did Gears to make sure the "gunsmith like fit" would last for 100,000 miles. If gear shims were off in 20K miles they could be ruined. Dealers had guides and jigs to do it for their brand, and speed shops had "speed smiths" that could do it in their sleep. Standard Mec shops hardly ever had folks experienced in gears.

Did anything change since the 70s? Or are gears like a drop in trigger job now?

Gears are not something you want to try and figure out. You need a few special tools like a gear puller and you need to be very familiar with how your rear dif works. I watched the tech at steeda do mine and I was glad it was him and not me... To me it seems like one of those things that if you have to ask how then you should probably leave it to the pro's.

There has got to be a good speed shop around that can give you a fair price. If no speed shop then look for an off road truck place. People who rock crawl and stuff like that have gears put in all the time. I bet a shop like that could get your gears in your car properly. You would probably need to get the parts yourself if you went that rout... I don't see jeep world carrying ford racing gears lol.

I'd say $500 to $600 if you already have all parts

$500 to $600 WITH GEARS AND INSTALL. 533.02 is what I paid from steeda out the door. Steeda is one of the best and labor was not cheap. In fact, labor was half the bill I think... What I did was look up ALL the speed shops your willing to trust. Make a list and call each one for a quote. See who has the best deal and go from there

I drove 3 hours to steeda so don't be afraid to travel. I wouldn't pay over 630 personally but allot depends on location
