Some places charge $150/hour for labor. Find a local shop that charges $75 or so. $1500–maybe a little more–for all of that work. You should be able to find a quote in the $1200 range, but then they ask, “You don’t really want to keep them old bearings in there, do you?” That bumps it up into the $1500-1700 range.

What does Regearing a truck do?
Re-gearing can and will improve your vehicles top speed, fuel efficiency and performance. Off-roading and upgrading to larger tires changes to overall diameter of the tire, roll resistance, tire rotation and adds weight of the tires into the mix.
Do I need to Regear with 33s?
You can drive just fine without them but they will be nice if you do it later down the road. 35’s will really need taller gears though.
How do you know if you need to Regear?
Why Should I Regear? If you do a lot of highway driving on small to mid sized tires, it may be practical to regear to a taller setup to increase your top speed and fuel economy. If you are planning on doing a lot of off-roading or are only upgrading to a larger set of tires, you should probably install shorter gears.
Does Regearing give you more torque?
Being the rearend gear is a torque multiplier you will definatly have more rearwheel torque on tap for acceleration and towing. The down side is you will not be in a gear as long and the motor isnt working as hard it will take even longer to get a slow spooling turbo going.
Do I need to Regear for 35s?
Yes, going to 35s you should definitely regear. And yes, the 4.10 to 4.86 is the proper range for 35s. You trade off will be fuel economy vs towing power. Being that your probably not going to be towing that much weight, you would probably be fine with the 4.10.
Will bigger tires affect my transmission?
Changing tire size doesn’t affect your transmission, but it does change your final drive ratio. The effect is the same as if you had changed your transmission. How much difference you have depends on how different the tires are compared to the stock tires. Larger tires will lower your final drive ratio.
Are 3.73 or 4.10 gears better?
4.10s are going to accelerate faster and decelerate faster on lift. However the trade off is greater fuel consumption per mile driven and higher engine speed per given road speed. In basic terms the 4.10s will feel quicker and 3.73 will feel faster.
What happens if you don’t Regear?
As you said, you will be slower pulling from a stop and less acceleration when you step on the gas, but you will be running a lower RPM at any given speed. If your tranny is a manual, it will wear the clutch a bit faster if you are slipping it more to pull off from a stop as well.
Will Regearing make my truck faster?
If you change your car’s gearing, can you make it quicker? The simple answer is yes. … If you swap in taller rear gears, you can gain some top-end speed, making your car faster, but you’re going to be a bit slower leaving from a stop. You’ll get an opposite result when you swap in shorter gears.
How do you tell if your truck has been Regeared?
Jack it up so 1 tire is off the ground. Put the transmission in neutral. Have someone turn the tire exactly 2 turns while you count the driveshaft revolutions. If you count 3 3/4 revolutions, the truck hasn’t been regeared.
