Need a good axle shop, Portland area

I need gears, axles, ABR's for a 8.8 and Dana 35. I'd like to buy them and have them installed at ine shop. Can any of you recommend a shop in the PDX area?

Lets see just to name a few, Dutchman Axle can do just about anything you need, Six States, and there is a little shop outside of Oregon City called R&P 4wheel Drive. I have had buisness with all three places and found their service to be great.

Dutchman sounds good. I'll give them a call. I've been having a problem locating a 31 spline 8.8 axle, they could probably make one for me.

We've got a few, but Auburn might be more of a drive than you want. Disc brakes, 3.73 or 4.10(like it really matters there), complete.

Dans Gears just out of sherwood. The guy works out of a shop on his property. He is basically the "ringer" for Six States and a few other shops around town. They call him in to do work in their shop when they need him. His prices are more than fair and never a question asked if you ever have to warrenty something. Between myself and people I know he has set up atleast 30 diffs for us. Only guy I would ever go to. Send me a message if you want his number.

Leonard's Off Road, awsome shop, and you will probably deal directly with Leonard.
