i just ordered a complete 3rd from marlin. i am more than happy with it. they were a few hunderd cheaper than ecgs, and they actually answered my emails too. i got my complete 3rd 8 days from the day i ordered it, even though they told me there was a 2 week wait time. what type of gears are you looking for? im parting a rig right now that has 5.29 open in the front and 5.29 locked in the rear.

i have never met him, but have heard several good things about him so i would tend to agree, especially since he is local-ish to most of us

$130 is cheap, they must have a diff monkey in the back room. Kinda all bondaged up like the gimp on Pulp Fiction.

How much do you charge Brian? I have someone to do the rear I got from you but he has never done these clamshell fronts so i'd feel more comfortable with someone who knows what he's doing... And just by a long shot do you have a spare front diff that would fit a 99 limited runner?

Sorry for the thread jack...

If you buy the parts from us, and bring the 3rd pulled into me, I charge $150 to set them up. And, I'll warranty parts and labor for six months if there is a failure. Only thing I won't warranty is if its been run low on oil.
