I have LoMax from JB Conversions. They are very beefy and I haven't heard of anyone breaking them. I also got their front output shaft, it looks like a solid piece, but I haven't installed it yet.

The JB gears look to be much beefier all around. The tera ones look like the puny stock gears. As for the outputs, I went JB front and Tera Rear for price. The shafts on the rear tera and JB ones look the same. I would have prefered to get the JB one, I just could not justify the extra cost at the time.

JB conversions 4:1 Lomax gears and front output, AA rear output. When it arrives, I want the extra short Novak output, but the 3 year long completion date is getting old....

that's pretty much what i've seen. a lot of guys seem to like the lomax stuff so i guess that's the gears i will use. might get all the parts from them.

thanks for all the replies!!!
