View Full Version : gear installer in PDX!

October 6th, 2004, 18:59
Need to finish up for the poker run at browns camp. One of the last things I need to get done is getting the front geared. Im still having issues with the install on my rear so Im looking for someone or somewhere new. I need this done ASAP.

You already doing it yourself? If you don't already have the gears call Central 4 Wheel Drive down there. They'll be able to set things up for you. Not sure how busy their shop is though...might be a week out for installation.

Arent they kinda spendy. I already have everything except a carrier.

If you have everything already then I don't know what to tell ya. A lot of actual shops won't touch the stuff because for liability reasons they can't install what they don't sell.

hey wannabe i got a guy puttin in my gears this weekend in woodland name richard. 150 an axle but i have everything, carrier install kits and ring and pinion, i will let you know how he does and then get back to ya, he has a lifted jeep and seems like a good guy, he also told me about the poker run and gave me a flyer, i am young and never have gone on a trail ride but i think im going to send a check in and sign up unless im to late. do u know if a jeep with 33's, 4.56s here soon, and a 4 inch lift can handle this ride or is it gonna be way out of my league?
