But anyway, I'm sure the dealer didn't do the install properly just to necessitate another repair after the short warranty you were given. I'd NEVER get gears done at a dealer. They don't take the time to mesh the gears properly. Not to mention most don't tell you about a break in period of about 50 miles.
It's best to go to a specialty shop if your warranty is over with. Yukon Gear is one of several good manufacturers on the market and offer several ratios to choose from - not to mention a REAL locking differential, not those posi types.
For those with 2wds you have the potential to outrun some 4x4's in the white stuff with a locking differential.
