If your running a crawler box make damn sure you use Precision Gears and have somebody who understands Toy's set'um up. I'm going down to Kongs4x4 in Phoenix next week to finaly have mine set up right. I've had two sets of Superior gears go bad due to improper setup.

Are the Precision Gears really that much better than Yukon Gears. I know, the Precision's cost more, but what makes them better. Metal, more tooth contact, design.....??? Any ideas.

The reason i ask, i can get front and rear Yukon 5.29's plus the set of kits for $400. Are the Precisions really worth the extra money?

5.29s will be find in 4 cyl 3rd members. The tooth contact area is just about same in V6 and 4 cyl 3rd members. The pinion bearing is just larger in the V6 unit. I wouldn't worry about, they'll hold up fine. It's a Toyota. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

US Gear has been making gears longer than just about anyone else... they also make gears for plenty of other companies - like Precision <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> (and according to I Lean - Yukon as well).

If I have a choice - US Gear is the one to go with <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Yukon is made by U.S. Gear
I believe that you need to ask randys again, I was told that Yukon are made by US gear but when I pressed they said that some batches ar US others are not. Call WCD I got US gears from them for 155.00 Good service.

OK, this is the voice of the opinionated butthead. 5.71's are the only option for running 35's, providing your drive like a human being. I've gotten 45K miles on my 5.71's with moderate to harsh abuse on the weekends and 120 miles a day commuting averaging 23 mpg. Granted, these are not near the strength of a 4.88, but the ease of driving my runner is amazing conpared to the 4.88 or 5.29's. <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">

Let's see, the ARCA nat's are in Farmington this weekend, Oh Yea, thats my back yard! <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> Your based out of Boulder, you've got.... the thrills of left hand canyon! Wooo Hoooo!! If you should decide to come do some real wheeling in NM, let me know. With 14 lights on your rig, your sure to see what 5.71's, 35's, and 5" alcans can do.
