Yukon VS Superior Gear

How do Yukon R&P gears compare to Superior Gear R&P's. I ask because I was told that I was buying Superior Gears and was shipped Yukon gears. Thanks

Re: Yukon VS Superior Gear

Was that Randy's R & P? The yukons seem to be their "house" gear. When I inquired about yukon gears, I was told they were high quality (by Randy's and what else would they say if that's what they are selling) and made in Italy. I suppose that could have changed, or there could be multiple sources that they box as "Yukon". I kind of resent the domestic sounding name for a foreign made part. The Superior gears are made in the US by a long standing manufacturor, Foote Forge & Axle. Nothing to say the Yukons aren't good, but they should be slightly lower cost, or why bother importing from overseas? I'd be miffed if they sent me a different brand than I agreed on. Brand name was my number one question when I ordered 4.56's. I got Spicer rear and Superior front for a Dana30/44 combo. I was told that Drivetrain Direct didn't have or couldn't get Spicer Dana 30 4.56's so that's why the Superior were stocked. They've been good, but I don't use the fronts 1/4 of the time. I drive lots of street, my jeep is my daily driver.

Personally, I'd give em hell for making a "substitution" without your consent and ask for a discount otherwise you want a full refund. You wouldn't expect to order a new jeep Tj and get a Mahindra instead. Ok, bad comparison, but my point is that you bought on the basis of getting Superiors, a trusted name (or at least a name that you were willing to trust) and they sent you something different. The least they could have done is asked you if it was ok before shipping them.
