    Question Gear set up specialty tools

    So I am starting to get tools together to do my gear's on my JKU and my buddies TJ. I have never done gears before but I am a technician for a living so I dont think it will be that scary. thankfully my buddy needs his gears before mine so I can learn on his first. so my question is, other than normal service tools what specialty tools are need to do this job properly. thanks for any help.

    Not required but a case spreader will make setup a million time easier.

    Yup.

    Also, depends on what you consider "specialty" tools. Some might call a 0-1" dial indicator with magnetic base, micrometers or calipers, and 0-30 or 40 in lb torque wrench "specialty".

    Yea I have a dial caliper and micrometer. So I will need a magnetic base, drop indicator and a case speaker. I will also need to hold the yoke in place.

    An inch lb torque wrench and a spanner wrench for the flange

    Eh, I just use a big fucking pipe wrench and a 5' fence pole to hold the flange/yoke.

    If you're working with a crush sleeve, get a 3/4" drive breaker bar as well. Or a 1/2" drive with a great warrantee cause it will break at least once.
