Motive or Yukon is a good brand but a lot comes down to install. You will prob also need a master install kit if you have more than 10k on your vehicle.
Check the vendors here to see what they have available.
If zero then check with Nick @ AIRRAM.

unfortunately..i dont know much about installing stuff like that....got go around town next week and get prices for installations...figure it would be cheaper for me to get all the parts and have someone put it in then let them get the parts and put it in......

Did the same. Used a guy on Craigslist for my 4.10's. $350 for install and fluids and he drove from Phoenix to my home outside of Tucson. In and out in 4 hours and it was whine free up until i replaced them last year w/ 4.88's. He did that too.

I would recommend finding someone who specializes with differentials all day, everyday and not a general mechanic.

alright...so far...this is what im leaning towards......

Pacesetter LT headers with 1700 jet hott
Comp 260 lsa 113
4.56 gears

still dont know about the torque converter....been seeing alot of 2800 being thrown around...but still dont know.

still not too sure on the cam since i will be getting a custom tune from Hemifever....want to make sure whatever cam i get will take full advantage of the custom tune

not to whore up your thread but you guys mentioned something about other years being a pita to tune, does the 04 fall into that catagory or is it more the 03's? i only ask cause i have started looking at either the crazy jay or crazy spartan (more towards the spartan if i can) and want to know if its going to be a pain to tune or not.

should i get the whole kit that they sell with everything? or should i just buy the pushrods and springs? ive seen the spring kit go for like 300ish....and from what im seeing...the springs by themselves and rods seperate are gonna be almost that much.

also....trying to look for the pushrods and springs....seems to be harder than i thought it would be...it also scares me because ive seen people saying that the beehive springs comp recommends doesnt fit in our trucks...now i dont know if that is still true..but im finding it hard to find springs and pushrods that specifically say "for 5.7L hemi"...any help with this would be appreciated
