    if your getting the gears and install kit local than those are good prices...
    but if your getting them from across the boarder than those prices are high compared to the guy I buy from...

    my build up consisted of super88 kit with c clip eliminator, 4.56 gears and ARB locker. The super88 was so I could have 5d5.5 bolt pattern to match the 44 in the front. I don't plan on going any bigger with this jeep so I don't mind spending to $$$

    Myself I would go for Dana Spicer gears. They have the pinion offset engraved into the pinion head so you have an idea of where to start when seting your shim stack the first time. I am not sure but I don't believe the Yukons do.

    It all depends if you are regearing yourself or sending it out. I am doing my gearing myself so that is why I chose the Spicer gears. Plus I got the bearings and shims with the kit for $200 USD. No extra install kit to buy (no carrier bearings but they can be found locally if the stock ones are shot).
