I'm looking for a differential shop to install my gears and Trac-lok unit. I would do it all myself, but I don't have the necessary tools to do so and it would cost as much for me to buy them as it would to pay for the install. To be a little more specific, I'm swapping from 2.73s to 3.55s and adding the Trac-lok unit. My current rear end has nothing wrong with it (that I know of), so there shouldn't be any surprises.
So, with this in mind, are there any good differential shops in the OKC Metro area that don't charge an arm and a leg? Blumenthal's is a great shop, but very spendy. I've contacted a place between Norman and Tecumseh that wants $300 for an entire rebuild, I supply the parts, and they supply the labor and 2 year, 24,000 mile warranty. I also spoke with Gary's Differential and he quoted the same price with no warranty and I supply all the parts.
Are there any other shops or folks in the area that you guys would recommend?
Axels transmition and transfers set up both the rear ends on the bronco for 125 each and he supplies the bearings he set up a couple 9" for 125 also but I supplied the parts then. That's if you wanted to make the trip to Tulsa.

I used Gary's Differential Specialist in Moore once when I was building a 9 inch diff for my '55 F100. He was reasonable on price and fast turn around, but all I needed was new bearings installed. 405-794-0988, worth a call.
I ended up going with Gary's in Moore and I'm happy that I did. He charged me $300 labor with me supplying all of the parts to include fluids. His team did an excellent job rebuilding the entire differential to include setting up the new gearset and Trac-Loc. The rear end makes no noise and performs flawlessly.
So, if anyone in the OKC area needs a differential rebuilt/regeared, I recommend his services.
