Any good gear shops around morgantown?

I bought some 3.55 gears for my truck and I'd like to get them installed sometime.

Is there any good gear shops around morgantown that don't charge an arm and a leg to do the job? Somebody told me about Chipp's in Fairmont, but I haven't called the guy yet...Fairmont is kind of out of the way for me to have to take my truck there, get a ride back, and then go back a day or two later to pick it up again.

Alternatively, are any of you guys near me experienced in doing gear installs, such that I might be able to lend a hand and pay you a bit to get them installed if I supplied everything else? I've never done gears before and don't really have the tools to set them up right, so I'm not real keen on installing them by myself.

6 HOURS per axle?

No wonder it's so damn expensive.
