first find out what gears you have CLICK HERE then determine what you then wanna swap them with.

Yes you can do them your self. You will need to know what your doing or you can screw things up pretty easy.

That's what I meant. Just wanted to confirm that he knows what he's doing. I know there are guys who can do just about anything, but still won't touch gears.

When I wanted to goto 4.10's . I thought of doing it myself but I didnt have the right tools so I just swapped the axle with one that had them.

I have friends who have done it before they say it's about a 7 on a scale from 1-10

You just gotta know what your doing to get the gears aligned and meshed right

ya i think your cheapest and easiest option is to just swap in an axle with the gears you want in it already, you can find axles for like $250

Find a axle using car-part.com

Depending what you got you would just unbolt the u bolts disconnect the e-brake and lower the axle out on a jack

And shocks. Then reverse the process with the new one.

O ya you have to remove the shock's from the axle also

The hardest thing to get off is the e-brake cable at the connection just under the driver door
